mtbikesman played very well. I believe he is getting stronger.

My 14.o18 was a mistake. It gave my opponent a strong center for insufficient compensation. Just |14.m14 would have been much better. Then for example
15.f8 16.k17 17.k16 18.l19.

|18.s21 would have worked if the corner battle were the entire game. But my gap from J18 to O18 is too weak.

Perhaps I should have tried |32.r15 33.r14 34.q17 35.t15 36.o21 37.k22 38.h22 before I played up top, and maybe my opponent would have missed 39.i23. But i23 still would have been the best move just on general principles, whether he saw all the tactics on the left side or not.

|34.h9 35.e10 36.g11 37.f13 38.f14 39.e15 40.g12 41.f12 would not have worked for black.

I resigned because of |56.h17 57.f20

The game would have ended sooner if I had made 45. g9 rather than e13. But since I saw that I could win with e13 I didn't look any further. I truly lucked out with the fork at k5 otherwise it would have been one more loss to King Bushmaster. I thank him for allowing me an occasional victory.

I would not have gone 39.e15 but 39.d14 which I don't think would have lost.

mtbikesman, perhaps you refer to the variation I posted? In that case, |34.h9 35.e10 36.g11 37.f13 38.f14 39.d14 shows what you're talking about. If you wish to discuss a variation someone else posted, you must post that entire variation in your post, from the point where it deviates from the game. The vertical bar | is useful for that. Also you can preview your post and click on the links to make sure they work the way you want before you commit to your comment. At any rate, sure your d14 also works.
