Correspondence #2: Mounting Pressure

This game was against a 1698 over the course of two days, the critical point of it comes from the middle game where the two Bishops lined up x-ray attacks and defender removal tactics which  require a few moves of depth to see. Black makes a reasonable move and castles however doing so removes the 2nd defender of the Knight and also puts the Knight into a pin with the Rook. The position below is where Black castles and allows for tactics to happen, either Black loses a pieces or the exchange. After the exchange was lost I played sensible and solid moves to retain the +2 advantage till the end game where the passed b pawn was threatening to promote. Blacks Knight couldn’t maneuver quick enough against the pawn and Rook to stop it and Black resigned upon realizing this.
