"Lives in the Balance"
I don't play a lot of 30 min games but i really liked my end game in this one. If anyone has any tips on how i can improve i'd love to hear them.
Hello, I'm new here, this is my first post. Thank you for creating what seems to be a great forum.
Below is my game summary. I am thirty-something years old, and this is my first game since I was 10...so please go easy on me. I know almost nothing about formal strategy, but would love to learn. The game below was played with my cousin, who I believe plays fairly regularly.

Thank you in advance for your analysis.
Here's a diagram.
Where did it go wrong for me? (I played white)
The original post was 7 years ago. Is this still happening? I'm guessing not.
Did you look at 9.Nxe5, with the idea of Qxh5.
An incredibly complicated game where I managed to win thanks to a slight misstep by my opponent and my significant time advantage throughout the late middlegame and endgame. Still, I think I allowed my opponent too much counterplay and probably missed a way to simplify to an easy winning position earlier.
Here is one of my best longest game ( 53 moves) I have played in a 10 minutes match, where my opponent starts with english opening , and at the end it was a fun endgame with rook and pawns involved, where I won by resignation.
This is the recent interesting game I played (with black pieces) in a 10 minutes match wherein I played ..Bd7, ..Ng4 move , creating threat to Rook on a1 , which my opponent couldn't read and I won by resignation.

Had a little king run ....tactics to win back my material
