I know white made mistakes, but I still enjoyed it. I was black.

1. e4 c5 2. Bc4 Nc6 3. c3 e5 4. Qh5 g6 5. Qf3 Nf6 6. d3 Bg7 7. h3 0-0 8. Ne2 Qe7 9. Na3 a6 10. Bg5 d6

11. Bxf6 Qxf6 12. Qxf6 Bxf6 13. Bd5 Bd7 14. Nc4 Be7 15. Nb6 Rad8 16. a4 Be6 17. Bxc6 bxc6 18. c4 Rb8

19. a5 Bd8 20. Na4 Bxa5+ 21. Kd1 Rb3 22. Kc2 Rfb8 23. Nc1 R3b7 24. b3 d5 25. exd5 cxd5 26. cxd5 Bxd5 27. f3 Bxb3+ 28. Nxb3 Rxb3 29. Rab1 Rxb1 30. Rxb1 Rxb1 31. Kxb1 Bb4

32. Kb2 Kg7 33. g4 Kf6 34. Kb3 Kg5 35. h4+ Kxh4 36. Kc4 Kg3 37. Kd5 Kf4

38. Nxc5 Bxc5 39. Kxc5 Kxf3 40. Kd5 Kf4 41. g5 a5 42. Kc4 Kxg5 43. Kd5 Kf4 44. Kc4 h5

I think at the end there white's king was wondering around concussed from all that capturing and sprinting, and the post-traumatic disorder after seeing the carnage on b1...

I would've put it in pgn but I couldn't get the king to castle in it.

I don't think you made too many mistakes at all. Very nicely outplayed white. you could have won the ending more quickly, but that is really neither here nor there.

1.e4 c5 2.Bc4 Nc6 3.c3 e5 (I prefer 3... e6 then d5) 4.Qh5 (silly loss of time. 4.Nf3 would be normal, then d4) 4... g6 5.Qf3 Nf6 6.d3 Bg7 7.h3 0-0 8.Ne2 Qe7 9.Na3 a6 10.Bg5 d6 11.Bxf6 Qxf6 12.Qxf6 Bxf6 13.Bd5 Bd7 (13... Ne7 14. Bb3 b5 would restrict White's pieces. If 14. Nc4 then 14... Nxd5 15. exd5 Bd8 keeping White out of b6. Black's two Bs would be a serious advantage). 14.Nc4 Be7 15.Nb6 Rad8 16.a4 (16. Nxd7 then f4 would be fine for White) 16... Be6 17.Bxc6 bxc6 18.c4 Rb8 19.a5 Bd8 20.Na4 Bxa5+ (Black should have no trouble winning now. But a change of direction is needed. ... Bc7, force White to play b3 to take that square from the Ns, .... a5, then break on the K-side with ...f5) 21.Kd1 Rb3 22.Kc2 Rfb8 23.Nc1 R3b7 24.b3 d5 (a blunder which could have given the game to White, because 25.Nxc5 would attack the Rb7 and uncover the attack on the Ba5. Even apart from this oversight, as a rule, when you have doubled pawns next to a single one, advance the doubled pawns ahead.) 25.exd5 cxd5 26.cxd5 Bxd5 27.f3 Bxb3+ 28.Nxb3 Rxb3 29.Rab1 Rxb1 30.Rxb1 Rxb1 31.Kxb1 Bb4 32.Kb2 Kg7 33.g4 Kf6 34.Kb3 Kg5 35.h4+ Kxh4 36.Kc4 Kg3 37.Kd5 Kf4 38.Nxc5 Bxc5 39.Kxc5 Kxf3 (less experienced players seem not to realise that a K+P endgame even one pawn down is often a surer loss than a middlegame a R down) 40.Kd5 Kf4 41.g5 a5 42.Kc4 Kxg5 43.Kd5 Kf4 44.Kc4 h5 0-1
