@zrylam 1) cxd3? i didn't want to play an open game 6) be2? not only does bd3 entice black to play cxd4 giving the illusion that white is losing a tempo. it also challenges black's overwhelming light squared bishop. i guess you should tell anand it's bad move cause it's in his repertoire too. 13) qb3? what? and allow black to castle kingside. yeah you fork the b and d pawn but my move gets so much more 15) possibly the better move you damn skippy it is nevermind what you would do 19)open the c file but also opening the d-file for black's rook. what a good idea let's give my enemy more ammunition. i already stated what i thought of your 20th move. i agree with your last statement
i never said it was hard to see. the hard part is getting there. oh you made a similar one a few days ago. yeah well i discovered an alternate life form on another planet. so i say. get the freakin message

Alan Tudor's DNA is all over my house! Are the donuts edible?
I'm so drunk...sorry....
you need a shot of smack to calm your nerves
ur a dick
the op clearly has no life if he thinks his queen sacrifice is somehow better than the hundreds of other queen sacs that led to mate...
op... you poor poor bolshevik... die.
that's it i have no life so much that i can hardly find time to play 2 days a move games(which the timeouts are the cause of 90% of my losses). i dont think some queen sacs ar better than others i know it. for example are you saying that fischers queen sac against byrnes (which was labeled game of the century) is no better than the 1 i displayed? you truly are dillusional. why dont you put a knife to your neck and slam a door on it?
tl;dr ur a dick
maybe you should quit going through peoples games and TRY to point out there shortcomings (which you miserably failed at). Then hurl insults at them when you get proved wrong. i bet you react the same way when you get stomped at chess. well my point is im right youre wrong now live with it.
3.cxd5 Nxd5 4. e4 and you already have a good centre.
I have seen a move like 6...dxc4 played to force the bishop to waste a move. Just something to consider.
Other than that, his random shambling on the kingside really lost him the game. If he had played 17...a5, your queenside attack might have fizzled out.
It was the a-pawn that lost him the game. While he was shuffling the g-pawn forward, the doubled rooks and the queen sacrifice, plus the pawn structure ruined by the white a-pawn(note that if he had allowed you to advance it to a6 then played b6, queen mate on b7 would be a threat) where hacking away his defences
