on how i can study and improve my game? This was a 15 minute match with no incriment
The toungue-in-cheek suggestion is to not play people rated 440 points higher than you.
I no longer give White the chance to play a King's Indian after 1 c4. 1 ...e5 is just fine for Black - no, you don't have to transpose into a "Sicilian Reversed" line. 1 c4 e5 2 Nc3 Nc6 3 g3 g6 4 Bg2 Bg7 5 d3 d6 6 Nf3 and now Black can choose between the solid ...Nf6, the aggressive ...f5, or hedge his bets with ...Nge7. White has nothing, basically.
No measurable space advantage with a central d4-d5, no Queenside advantage, no nothing.
The way you played seems okay until ...Bg4. There isn't really a point, of course White plays Qd3, a strong and useful move. Instead, just ...Bh3 and trade the LSBs if you are determined to attack the King, and why invest all those moves with ...Qd8-a5-h5 etc. if you aren't attacking.
Once White plays 1 c4, there should be no question of allowing him to transpose back into a 1 d4 line where he has reasonable chances of creating an advantage.
