Practicing my unbalanced games....

Game I played on facebook.  Obviously my rating is lower there than it should be(just started playing there).  Please don't tell me what opening I should be playing.  Any thoughts on the game are greatly appreciated.  Especially some sample play in the a5 line that white should have played

I played black by the way

What is the difference between Rd3 on 18 and 19?

haha....absolutely nothing.

It doesn't look like he can play Qxd3 anyway because after 20... exd3 21. Bxa8 d2 wins his bishop.

yes, true true.  I of course saw that as well. 

 

And I thought my vision was coming back :(

Although the rook and minor piece ending is interesting as well.  I think white might still have an advantage because after a4 the rook gets really active.  Luckily I do have those kingside pawns blockaded.
