    I think this is a hopeless position for me, definitely resignable. You win . If I played 24.Kb1 and I would have been mated soon by 24...Nc3.

    Thanks.

    I thought you played the opening rather well for a while, especially as it was such a strange line!

    12.Nd5 was just a blunder - right idea at the wrong time. That move was OK on move 10 prior to retaking the pawn on d4. I intended ...Nf6 followed by ...0-0 in that case and it would have been interesting as sooner or later I will probably have to take on d5, when you again have the good pawn structure, but you also have an exposed king.

    Or you could have played 11.Ke2 instead of Ke3. I probably would have had to then play ...Ng4 or ...Ng6 allowing a queen-swap, after which your knight goes in on d5 again, and if I take it you get a better pawn structure, while if I don't you could have other threats (eg the line 11.Ke2 Ng4 12.Qxf6 N8xf6 13.Nd5 0-0 14.Nc7 Rb8 15.Bf4 Nxe4 16.Na6 and I have to give up the exchange or take a draw.)

    Having played 11.Ke3 I think you had to play 12.Be2 next. I thought the position was about level if you did that.

    I started to lose a bit of hope after my move 15.Kc2. I should have played 15.Kd4 and try to save my e pawn. After that it was a piece down and a pawn down which is too much of a deficit in exchange for having the two bishops.
