Chock full of Tactics and Subtle Threats.
Heh, felt like a dozen times I wanted white to play Nc3 or 0-0. I guess he wanted to blow you away with aggressive moves.
On d5 I thought he had you :) 12.Qa4 seems hard to meet though.
14.dxc6 was a blunder, black has tons of initiative now.
Wouldn't expect you to see 18...Rd6 works tactically, well done ;)
What is the importance of 18..Rd6?
It creates a pin, gaining a tempo, as well as letting the queen come in and attack the bishop. Just that little bit of pressure that black can't handle. It force wins a piece in about 4 moves because white can't do enough things at once.
8.0-0 is a much better move, since 8...Nxe5? loses a piece to 9.Qe2!
But your 9...Nf4? is not such a good move (simply 9...de5 and Black looks OK). White could simply play 11.Qc4! and you would be in deep trouble.
