Well Mike, since posting my game I looked at it with a chess engine and found an interesting mating net for white, which we all missed - enjoy!
Okay, got another one, my opponent made a HUGE mistake, which collapsed his entire defense.
@ Gump - yeah nice triple fork there. I thought your pawn was hanging for a while and you maybe should have defended it with 7. bf4 - his b6 seemed a waste of time.
He definitely shoud have taken on e5 with his knight when your queen attacked, thereby chasing your queen too.
For some reason I'm unable to post my games. I can't find the submit button once I get everything finished.
Well, anyway, I have a 2-day tournament starting today. Wish me luck!
Once you've got to the preview step, click insert (bottom left), then click post comment. If this doesn't help you'll need to be more specific.
Which tournament are you in btw?

Even though your opponent was quite clueless on crucial stages of the game, I did like it due to your timely exploitation of every weakness you could conceive during play, with a remark to 13. d5.
you said "I don't think I was supposed to do that." but it is perfectly okay. It's called the King's gambit accept, I've played it a few times and had relatively good games, you just have to be careful that you can still develop. The point is for white to have you waste a turn by taking it, so that he can develop before you.
Yes, I was playing a three minute, and I'm not so great on short time, so I missed the hanging pawn until I looked back on the game. I was surprised he didn't take it though
comments in the game,.. :)
Thanks a bunch for these comments mate i really appreciate your effort :>There are 2 things i want to explain though.The reason of ..10Bxc3 was to eliminate the only defender of the e4 square.(I used it for my white bishop in future)And i believe 15Qg4 was a good move all he had to do was to retake my queen with his knight.As i said i would still be up both in material&position but there would be much play left.Thats what i think atleast, would like to hear your opinions bout it :>
The Queen trade just puts a damper on whites chances to create complications. there was no need. granted the ?? is probably an overstatement but it was to make a point white is stuck with a passive position even after Nxg4 and no way to generate counter play.
Your idea to gain control of the e4 square is good but I think that its not necessary to jump on that so quickly. you had other ideas to pursue that could have kept the bishop pair.
check out positions in the french and queens gambit where players jump on the pawn doubling and how a strong player plays the position. the weakenesses on the kingside arent going away and can be used later ..
