18.Qd4 looks good -- maybe I would've found something like that if I had more time. I felt sort of dull and confused after 18.Qb3, so I was surprised to realize after the game that I had an advantage right up until I allowed the knight fork on d7. I knew that I had a good position after he played ...g5, so I should've paused and looked for the best way to attack that weak kingside.

Here's a 15 5 game I just played (as black):

14...c5: This is a blunder. Computer says I missed 14...Be7 15.b5 Bb4+ 16.Kf1, exploiting the fact that white can't defend the b4 square.
27.Nc5: 27.Nb6 Re8 28.Nxd5 is totally dominating for White. I underestimated the initiative White would get after 23.Rb8+. Black should play 26...Bxd7, trading off an attacker.
33.Nb2??: This was a gift, especially since I was in time trouble at this point. Black is a piece up now.

Glad I got to practice playing an IQP position (although the move I played to get there, 14...c5, was bad), since that's what I'm building my repertoire around. Very busy with work, but I do tactics whenever I get the chance. I'd like to play more often, especially longer games!

Hey Ska, I'll take a look more closely at this game over a cup of coffee later :D It's funny this was played a year ago! I hope to talk to you sometime on myth about chess!
