A Good Win

Here’s a game I played this last weekend in which I got my best win in long play tournaments. My opponent was graded 169 ECF which is close to 2000 in Elo rating.

The knight sacrifice with 24.Ne5+ was sound but Black should have played 28…Rhf8 instead of 28….Rhe8. Probably he missed my 29.Bd5 and 30.Qd7+.
