Finally, a rare win for me in the King's Indian Defense opening! Most of my KID games result in a sad destruction of my position but this game I won despite being caught in a king hunt towards the end of the game.

In retrospect, I think with 29.Nh3, my initiative would have fizzled out. I think its mainly luck that white didn't play 29.Nh3, I didn't have a good response to it. Anyway, a most enjoyable game, sometimes I just amaze myself!

Did you have a plan against 25.Be2?

Earlier, against the time-losing four-pawns attack, Black needs to blast White's centre before he catches up in development, e.g. c5, d5 e6 or b5. Check something like NCO for specifics. Playing for a leisurely ...b5 is too slow, and might be why you have been unsuccessful with the KID in the past, from what you said.

Yeah, 29.Nh3 would have been good.

What would you play after 36.Bg5+ Ke5 37.Re8+ ?

Okay, okay, I admit there are many mistakes in my play. I guess it was purely luck that I won that game. 36.Bg5+ Ke5 37.Re8+ and 25.Be2 are good moves which I don't have a good response to.

Congratulations to Black for winning an interesting game.

Congratulations to white for having the guts to play one of the main lines.

Hey, you are actually dissecting a win by yourself and seeing what you could do better. Most walk away from a win convinced that they have played well and don't learn the lessons you are getting until they lose playing the exact same stuff. You have accelerated your learning on this line by about 6 months.
