1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.Bg5 0-0 5.e3
[5.e4 This is what I could of played and been more aggressive by taking the center and gaining more space!]

5...d5 6.Nf3 h6 7.Bh4 Nc6 8.Bd3 dxc4 9.Bxc4 Bd6
Fritz says that White is up 0.84 and should castle! I thought about it but I wanted to play it safe so I could have b1-h7 with my Queen and Bishop.

10.a3 e5 11.0-0
[11.dxe5 Nxe5 12.Be2 Nxf3+ 13.Bxf3 Be5 14.Qc2 I didn't like the exchange at the time but it looks better than I thought.]

11...Bf5 12.Re1 exd4 13.Nxd4 Nxd4 14.Qxd4
[14.exd4 Felt the isolated d-pawn was not going to help me. Fritz likes it better than Qxd4.]

14...c5 15.Qd2
A terrible mistake on my part. Don't know why I did this, so I resigned because of the discovered check followed by a win of the queen. [15.Qd1 A move I should of done!!] 0-1
