Yea so the ending was a bit dry.... Actually had a little stressful night before the game and due to my own obvious missights I thought I dropped a piece and more and was quick to act on resigning. Sorry for the bad game kamus and I do not want any feeling bad because of it. It was totally my fault. I have started to get this syndrome of automatically doing things without thinking which is why I fail at chess lol.

Anyway back to the game I think my big positional mistake was allowing the e5 push with Nf3. I think d6 answers well instead of Nf3? which gives white a bigger advantage even though he is a pawn down. I think you used your bishops well in the position, cramping down on my camp. I believe white a decent edge in the ending position we got to.

So good luck in the rest of your games kamus. I think I am going to take a break from playing chess for a little bit probably a week or two (though id still do the tournament games) so I can clear my head. =]

Thanks Enovyt. Good luck in your remaining games too. It's all a learning experience one way or another.

In the game, I miscalculated a couple of times. 13.Nb5! won material immediately but I was a bit foggy on the details with the time control as it is so I wimped out with 13.Bd6 which at least wasn't a losing move. My final move 15.f3 was inferior to 15.d5! which leads to a very strong attack. Better moves courtesy of 20/20 hindsight and Hiarcs 12.

Kamus, it's late so maybe I'm missing something, but I believe your intuition was correct:

13.Nb5 wins for you: 13. ... Qxe5 (...Qb8 is no better) 14.Nd6+ Ke7 (...Kd8?? 15.Nxf7+ etc.) 15.Nxb7+ Ke8 16.Nd6+ Ke7 17.Qxe5 Nxe5 18. Be2 and you're winning since you are a piece up and the N can be safely extracted.

In that ending position, Black is dangerously close to getting his Queen trapped.
