10. ... b6: Who is afraid of doubled pawns? Instead of weakening c6, 10. ... Qb6 was probably better.

13. ... Qd7 invited the knight to attack. Although White has already an advantage, mainly because of a better development and his rook controlling the c-file, Black should have tried 13. ... Ne4 instead.

<Jack Kerouac and Autoreparaturwerkbau> 20. ... Bxe5 may look impressive, but to me it rather looks risky, because after 21. Nxc8 Black has not enough compensation for the exchange. Perhaps 20. ... Rc7, in order to stabilize the position, was more reasonable.
