Was this worth the risk?

I am not sure if I am required to perform to many perfect moves on too many variations, in other words, is there too many opportunities to mess up?

Was what worth the risk? 9 e6?

The computer thinks that in the end, with best play on both sides, e6 kept things even.

However, the computer wants black to take the e6 pawn, rather than going for the fork and the rook.

But there's not all that much difference in the lines.

That's what the computer is good for evaluating the possible alternatives. You can try out the various alternatives.

E6 seems a good move to me  , Nxf2 is a serious blunder Obviously , black should take e6 pawn , after Nxf2 you seems winning . Also , 5. Nf3 is better than 5. Nc3 , and 5... Bg4 is bad for Black because of 6. Bxf7+ !

I use to be from perfect country too. Sometimes it is good and sometimes it can be to your detriment. It can hinder you from playing differently and getting better. In OTB it can cause you to think too long and waste time over trivial moves. Commend yourself, that was a great rook recover and checkmate.
