Nice win and a good demonstration of how tactics often prevails. You had me nervous there in the beginning with the isolated c pawn.

Thanks PMD. The isolated c-pawn is a standard in the line of the two-knight's defence that I play. It blocks the Bishop and defangs the White attack after Ng5.

It's actually a nice line with tactical play for Black. White's response, Be7 is also one of the normal lines. Notice how his Bishop has retreated and blocks in his Q? Gives me a tempo to chase his N with h6.
