You blundered your rook.

 

It was a 30 minutes game. You had enough time to avoid those kind of blunders.

Then you walked into a forced mate.

Ouch.

...11. b5 creates holes and weaknesses then you block your own lsb with Qd7 i don't like 11.b5 at all; just clogs up the works and you're now on the defensive; you've played pretty majestically for 10 moves; bishop pair, strong center, completely developed almost if only . . . .

11. Bd7!! which ends the opening(!!) and puts you squarely in the middlegame(!); rather than 15 more wishy washy moves futzing around with a Bishop stuck on c8.  just my opinion

gave you no flexibility and you were reactive after that

...Bd7 then maybe Qc8 eyeing the sack on h3, just an idea

There areca lot of ugly positional structures since after move 10. Will just point out a few.

 

In this position, why you play c5? Did you see that it leave you permanent isolated " d" pawn in open " d" file?.  Why not consider "a5" ? And also why block your bishop with Queen in earlier moves? Qc7 was better than Qd7.

drmrboss

In earlier position, you have 4 pawns vs 3 pawns in queen side, so you definately have to expand queenside. I will consider Be6, c5, a6, b5 expansion. And then Qc7 and Rfd8 obviously to defend on open "d" file and another rook on any potential open file in queenside.

I tried that and I STILL look like a pale Dwight Shrute...

It was just a typical game. I would ignore the criticisms. You'l find you improve and you didn't do too bad.

13 ...b5 was the first obviously bad move because you should be concentrating more on development. Just concentrate on development, and on both defensive and aggressive possibilities, and you'll find that you start beating players at that level as a matter of course.

In the beginning, you rightly made threatening moves, but you chose to trace your e-Pawn for White's d-Pawn in a way that put you behind in development a little and trades away a Center Pawn.

I would have been considering ...e6 and then ...c5 where your c-Pawn is protected by both your d7-N and f8-B, which would give you two Center Pawns to White's One.

You still came out of the opening with a playable game, but make weak moves that allowed White a great Knight Outpost and a Pin and a Fork did you in.

In the middlegame, you almost invited White to use e5 as a Knight Outpost.  Always remember that a Knight on the 3rd rRnk is poised for action, a Knight on the 4th Rank is as good as a Bishop, a Knight on the 5th Rank is better than a Bishop, and a Knight on the 6th Rank can be devastating.

You had a playable game until 33...Bb5, but that White Knight on the 5th then 6th then 5th Rank complicated things for you for a lot of moves before that

Before I clicked, I thought you meant you're race was black. There was no need to mention that you played black because it showed your colour in the game.
