Joe - I put together some notes re: your annotation request. Yes, ...b6 was bad
;-) but you realized it probably even during the game. Your opponent blundered twice after that - the last one Qf3?? being fatal. Your ...Rb8 was a good idea. You should have followed through with ...a6 and ...b5 undermining his center. As I indicated in the notes, it's a good idea in general to keep d7 available for your knights. Quite often maneuvers like Nf6-d7-c5 (or e5) unmasking your Bg7 are useful - Mike

The perspective requested for annotations/comments: I think I was lucky to win. 13.... b6 weakened the c6 square to my ruin. After 21. f4, the only real hope for counterplay was to sac the knight for 2 pawns and let my rooks operate on the open c-file. Instead of closing the file with the very natural 23.Nc6, my opponents Ne4 again gave me a slim hope. The final question is after my zwischen-zug 26...Rxe4, Qf3 loses. Rather I believe 27. Qxe4 Rc2+ 28. Qxc2 Qxc2+ is better, with the retaking of the N on e5 no done deal as whites passed d-pawn & 2 rooks vs Q leave a very tricky finish. It was a neat tactical game, any further insights by those better at deep analysis would be much appreciated.
