1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nc6
I could of played the winawer or the classical variation but I seen this strange 3rd move for Black and I felt I played it well

4.e5 Be7 5.Be3 b6 6.Bd3 Bb7 7.Nf3 g5
This might not be the right plan but I recall seeing this in a video and wanted to give it a try.

8.0-0 h5
Fritz doesn't like the g5 & h5 attack. White is up 1.17

9.a3 g4 10.Nd2 Qd7 11.f3
I did not like that move. I wanted to castle queenside. I could lose a pawn but don't know if thats the correct way to go.

[11...0-0-0 12.fxg4 hxg4 (12...Nxe5 13.dxe5 d4 14.g5 dxe3 Fritz likes this better than the route I took.) 13.Qxg4 ]

12.exf6 Nxf6 13.Bg6+
The King is going for a long walk!

13...Kd8 14.Bd3 Kc8 15.b4 a5
Fritz likes e5 better when White is up 0.22 but now b5! is 1.40 with a better position for white.

16.b5 Nd8 17.Bg5 Kb8
[17...Ne4 Is much better says Fritz. I have been working on my tactics latley but can't believe how many crazy tactics are in this game so far that I have missed.]

18.Ne2 gxf3 19.Rxf3 Ng4 20.Bxe7 Qxe7 21.Qf1 Nh6
[21...e5 Fritz says Black is better after this move! -0.55]

22.a4 Ndf7 23.Bg6 Ng5 24.Rc3 Ka7 25.Qf4 Rac8
Fritz liked e5 before the Queen came. Also Rag8 is good for Black instead of Rac8.

26.Bxh5 Kb8 27.Qf2 Rcf8 28.Nf4 Qf6
[28...e5 I missed this winning Tactic! Darnit! 29.Ng6 (29.dxe5 Qxe5 30.Qe3 Qxf4 31.Qxf4 Rxf4 ) 29...Rxf2 30.Nxe7 Rxd2 ]

29.Rf1 Nf5 30.Rd3 Nd6 31.Qe1 Qh6 32.h4 Nge4 33.Rdf3 Nxd2 34.Qxd2 Ne4 35.Qe1 Rxf4
Didn't know what to do besides trading my Rook for the Knight and Bishop. I think better was to get my Bishop involed more into the game.

36.Rxf4 Qxh5
Fritz agreed with the exchange that I did. Black is up -2.09

37.Qe3 Bc8
I might be too late with getting the Bishop active

38.g3 Kb7 39.R1f3 Bd7
[39...Ng5 Low on my time, I missed another tactic. I did see this move somewhere and It might of been this move but I saw something that didn't look good. I was blind with time ticking! 40.Rf1 (40.hxg5 Qh1+ 41.Kf2 Rh2# ) 40...Nh3+ 41.Kh2 Nxf4 ]

40.Rf7 Bc8
[40...Nxg3 41.Qg5 Ne2+ 42.Kf2 Nxd4 43.Qxh5 Rxh5 44.R3f4 e5 ]

Here comes trouble!

Is their anything better?

42.Qxe5 Qxe5 43.dxe5 Re8 44.Rg7
The Double Rooks are more active than the defensive Rook, Knight, and Bishop. White should be winning this one.

44...Be6 45.h5 Rh8 46.Rg6 Bc8 47.h6 Nc5 48.Kf2 Ne6
I'm losing by alot. I gave up the lead when I had the chance! [48...Nxa4 49.e6 Nc5 50.e7 Nd7 From what I saw after I made my move, I think I should of taken that free pawn!; 48...Nd7 Best chance says Fritz!]

49.Ke3 Bd7 50.Rff6 Nf8 51.Rg7 Bc8 52.Kd4 Be6
[52...Ne6+ I thought that Bishop to e6 holds the position. I did see this Knight fork but I thought that I could draw with the Bishop on that square.]

53.h7 Kc8
and my King just JUMPED off the cliff!

54.Rg8 Bxg8 55.Rxf8+ Kd7 56.hxg8Q 0-1
