 Re: coordination
Interesting game. my thoughts

1) overall I think you outplayed your opponent in the opening, the position after 16...d5 seems to be in your favour

2) ...dxe3 this is the critical decision of the game, can you explain your thought process going into this variation, what factors made you think it would be good for you?

3) I dont like 34. Nd3 by your opponent. maybe this is the only way white saves the pawn but the knight is a really strong piece on e5

4) great rook coordination to win the queen and eventually take the endgame. many top players prefer using 2 rooks to the queen and you used them to great effect.

1) yes, I won the center with d5, because his knight remained misplaced after the dark bishops trade
2) his moves looked forced after that move, and I thought my position was superior after the trade - his king is more exposed than mine and I have the rooks against the queen so no checks for the queen and easy defence for the rooks, he has to repair my pawn structure by taking my queen, my bishop is better than the knight in the endgame because the pawns are on both sides of the board, I have the b file to attack his pawns
3) yeah, I thought his only plan was to go knight to e5 Rxb2 and then play g6, to try to mate me but after g6 Rf6 his queen is attacked and I saw no way for him to continue the attack and his pawns have a short life expectancy
4)thanks

Both 13.Bxb6 or 13.Qd2 seem ok. White was wrong to give up the centre.
