    I am black in this game.  What did I do well?  What could I do better?  What did my opponent do well?  What could my opponent do better?  Thanks in advance for any comments.

    my intention is that awkward Ng5 move on move 5.You don't usually move a piece twice in the opening.

    My thoughts. Be sure to take a look at variations in blue, too. I like to annotate everything.

    Rg8 was played to stop the knight fork, and now the knight on g5 for white has no job.  It was an OTB game played with long time controls. 

    eddysallin I was black in the game.  I am assuming you mean those moves for my opponent to do.

    Also thanks NachtWulf for your comments.  Move 8... Ng4 was played to advance the knight to a strong defended position. 

    Move 9 the thinking behind that was there would be an open b file to attack, and doubled pawns on a weak c file.

    Ok, but Nxf7 is not really a threat at this point, as f7 is protected by your king. So I think a simple developing move such as 5...Bg7 is fine. If white goes 6.Nxf7, you play Kxf7 and say thank you Wink

    I think I found a little tactical improvement in move 16. You put your rook on the open file to attack h4, good idea. But why not take the lazy one hanging around on d8? That allows the pawn attack g5 to try to open files on the king side with both rooks. I went only through some variations against the defence g3, looks promising:

    Obviously Nxf7 is not a threat at this point.  But it could be if white plays Bc4. 

    And the opponent was weak.

    Yep, but after 5...Bg7 6.Bc4 you can castle which protects f7 with your rook as well.
