Ok. let me replay it.  I must have messed up a move.

OK, got it.  I messed up move 19.   Tough game.  And I was assuming you would win, so I erred the move in that direction.

Algebraic notation still drives me nuts.  Positional is almost never wrong.  Can you notate positionally?

Want to play a game?

I recommend https://lichess.org/

Easy to set up a new game and requires no registration. You can make an account, but that's only for keeping a score and saved games.

EDIT: btw, just click the "Play with a friend" link on the right panel, and click which side you want to play, you will be given a link you can share with your friend so they can jump right into play.

I've done that at sites.  The only way to enjoy the game is with someone you know and personal.  Onsite games don't have the "game" about them face to face.

http://www.chess.com is more popular, but lichess is much better, IMO.

Well, since being physically present is an unlikely option, gaming sites like lichess is an alternative.
