Of course, because this game was played online, there won't be any colorful comments to any odd reactions the opponent might have like in my first annotation. I haven't played any chess games in person for a while so instead I've been playing more games online. Now I without a doubt prefer live games due to the ease it is to play a cheater online. I actually ran into somebody on FICS who accused ME of using an engine. After he called me my mother a whore I asked him to please stop or I would report abuse. He said sorry and challenged me to another game where his playing skill increased significantly. Needless to say I'm quite certain he turned on his engine because he played the main line against the Najdorf flawlessly.
Anyway back to the game. Here is a link to the game, however if any RED Staff could edit the HTML I would be grateful.

(The player, Yoshitsune, and I had up to this point had already played 5 blitz games. It was all even with each player having 1 win, 1 loss, and 1 draw. Each game with White I opened 1. e4 and he opened with the Caro-Kann Defense.)
2.d4 d5 3.exd5 cxd5 4.Bd3 Nc6 5.c3 Nf6 6.Nf3 Bg4
(I believe in the other game in the Caro-Kann Exchange Variation, Yoshitsune actually played 6. ... e6 before getting his light-squared bishop out. This was an improvement but neither of us would have thought the game would be over in less than 25 moves.)
(Here I contemplating on whether to chase the bishop away with perhaps h3 and g4 but I rejected it fearing my king would have no comfortable space.)
7. ... e6 8.h3 Bh5 9.Nbd2?
(Being selfish in my thinking, I was only focusing on developing my own pieces. 9. Bf4! prevents 9. ... Bd6 from Black unless Black wants to exchange his good bishop.)
9. ...Bd6 10.Re1
(Controling the semi-open file and making space for my knight to reroute to g3.)
10. ... O-O 11.Nf1 Nd7 12.a4?!
(It is a blitz game and I figured he would be pursuing counterplay on the queenside. 12. a4 was to prevent any pawn from coming to b5-b4 and messing up my center. However, 12. Ng3 Bg6 13. Bxg6 hxg6 and it's still pretty equal.)
12. ... e5?!
(A little premature in my opinion. I felt preparing to challenge control of the file with Re8 after the lines are opened was a better idea.)
(It's amazing how Black's position begins to unravel because of this move.)
(The wrong piece! Yoshitsune and I, after finishing this game, immediately discussed that taking on d3 was the lesser of two evils. He thought that taking on f3 gets rid of a defender. He neglected his own king's safety. I immediately pounced on the pawn and proceeded to dismantle Black's position.)
(Another poor move. Hangs a pawn and a piece.)
(An either poorer move. The piece was already lost. His best try was to try and get my queen off the board for a rook and two pieces with 16. ... Rad8 17. Qxd6 Nde5! 18. dxe5 Rxd6 19. exd6 though White still is up the exchange Black has at least a little compensation.)
17.Bg5! Nb6 18.Qg2 Bh2+
(To make room for his queen.)
19.Nxh2 Qd6 20.Ng4
(Funny how the knight finally got into the game. b1-d2-f1-h2-g4. You see this knight maneuver sometimes in Ruy Lopez games.)
20. ... Kh8
(I guess. There's so much piece pressure on Black's king. If you cut the board in half you'll see how dominant White's forces are around Black's king.)
21.h6 gxh6 22.Bf6+ Kg8??
(Misses mate in 1. 22. ... Qxf6 23. Nxf6 Rg8 24. Qxg8+ Rxg8+ 25. Nxg8 Kxg8 is Black's only hope.)
(A pleasing finish. Hope you enjoyed this game.)
