Rxb1 Qxd5 6. Qa4+ Nc6 7. e3 a6 8. Bd2 e6 9. Rc1 Bd6 10. Ne2 O-O { As I found out immediately after this, I would get forked. Stefan mentioned Bd6 should have been Be7 to avoid these issues } 11. e4 Nxe4 { Now I had to sack } 12. fxe4 Qxe4 13. Qc2 Qg4 { This one is interesting, I spent a lot of time here. It seemed to me that despite being a pawn up, he had opened the center without being castled, knight is pinned, bishop and rook are both trapped. It seemed logical that he would try to trade off queens and I was trying to find a way to prevent him from castling while keeping the queens on board. I considered Qd5, but I could not find a good square for the queen afterwards if he started chasing me, so Qg4 seemed the best. } 14. Qd3 Rae8 { Here I felt perhaps Rfe8 would have been more flexible to leave Rad8 possible } 15. h3 Qh4+ { I was continuously looking at g3 square and my bishop to figure out some kind of tactics, but I did not find any } 16. g3 Qe7 17. Bg2 Nb4 18. Bxb4 Bxb4+ 19. Nc3 e5 { I don't know if Qf6 would help me prevent him castling, engine does not think so } 20. O-O exd4 { This was not good to allow the knight jump } 21. Nd5 Qd6 22. Nxb4 Qxb4 23. Rxc7 Re3 24. Qc4 Qxc4 { Here I was trying to calculate if I can let him take f7, but I could not find any quick counterplay with the queen so I had to trade it off } 25. Rxc4 d3 26. Rd4 b6 27. a4 a5 28. b3 g6 { Here engine insists repeatedly I should take g3, but I thought I want to get my pawns off the light squares and then trade off a rook for the pawn and play a bishop down, I wondered if I could draw it. g6 was to get my king off the diagonal, I felt that the bishop would end up on d5 soon } 29. Rd1 d2 { d2 was to allow me to choose which pawn to take back, I was not sure so I wanted to see what he would do, which way he would take. The pawn was lost anyway } 30. Bd5 Re1+ { I could not believe my eyes!!! } 31. Kf2 Rxd1 32. Ke2 Rg1 33. Kxd2 Rxg3 34. h4 Kg7 35. Bc4 f5 36. h5 Re8 { Cutting off king } 37. Rd7+ Kh6 38. hxg6 hxg6 39. Bf7 Ree3 40. Rd6 f4 { After this we were down to 3 minutes, I did not write the moves down, but in essence I pushed the pawns, he pushed b pawn after trading, I traded off a rook, put my other rook on b2 and walked the king up the board. } 0-1
