I forfeited the game after making a massive miscalculation on this pivotal position. Discuss, propose continuations, analyse.

Here's the game log up to that point if you're curious:

1. c4 Nc6 2. a4 e5 3. Nc3 d6 4. Nf3 Be6 5. d3 Nf6 6. Qb3 Na5

7. Qa2 Nc6 8. Bd2 Qd7 9. Nd5 a5 10. e3 Be7 11. Be2 O-O 12. Qb3 Rfb8

13. Nxf6+ Bxf6 14. Qc2 d5 15. e4 d4 16. h3 h6 17. Nh2 Rf8 18. b3 Bg5

19. O-O Bf4 20. Bxf4 exf4 21. Qd2 f5 22. Qxf4 g5


what a nasty situation you were in

i feel like Qd2 would "reset" the situation so to speak with a severe loss of tempo / board control - if i was black i would keep pushing with those pawns afterwards, probs with the f-column pawn but i don't know a damn thing about chess compared to you so i'm interested to see what you would have done if you hadn't forfeited

in my amateur chess experience i don't think that's a game-losing move necessarily, but it's a kick in the dick
