2...Nf6 was fine, but 3...e5 was interesting. You basically played a Pirc with that odd e5 move.
3... g6 or 3...c6 are the natural/normal moves. Nice game.

I don't think you should have let white go into the pawn down rook ending with Nxb3 and Kxd5. the bishop will never go it anywhere and black is free to suck the life out of white's position and only then decide what to do. Also black can maneuver the nb7 Kc5 and Nd6 and Nc4 with a winning king and pawn ending. Too bad you accidentally repeated moves three times.

Agreed. Getting a pawn but letting my opponent out of the bind was no good.
