    Here is the game:

    On the 13th move instead of c6, Black should have moved Qxh3. White had only one place to go in its 14th move i.e. Kg1. The game would have been just one move away when Black would give a check mate on the 15th move my Kg2 ! Indeed it was a game that Black threw over. Congrats!

    Oh yeah, I meant on the 14th move instead of bxc6, Black should have moved Qxh3 ;-)
