Exciting Game

This game was exceptionally exciting and if I may say so, very well played on my part.  I was down to 3 seconds toward the end, which is why maybe I was going for a perpetual and not realizing that I was winning, nor did I bother to count the material on the board.  A few moves before the end I was totally winning but didn't realize it. Earlier I made a sacrifice at a time when there was a great deal of conversation around me, so I was distracted and the sack was not totally sound, but according to computer I was not that bad off and I was definitely winning toward the end.

This is the kind of game that needs serious computer analysis.  I have the computer working on it now, but as I entered the game it seemed to agree with many of my moves.

My opponent thought that my 16. Na3 was brilliant, with the idea being 16.  ... Qd7 17. Nb5, and as I entered the game into Fritz, the computer agreed with this move as well.

In the previous round I turned a pawn down king and pawn ending into a win because my 1951 opponent was a little unclear on how to play it.
