My opponent played very poorly in this game but the final mate was picturesque. :)

Nice mate but I feel you had already won the game when you chased his king to the middle.

The game is a perfect example of why you should get your king safe before you launch all your pawns up the board. Nice job taking advantage of the weak squares left behind.

This combination of f5 and h6 before castling is just asking for trouble. Nicely punished :)
