The perspective requested for annotations/comments: I am trying to understand what mistake I made in this game. I analyzed it with the computer and it seems that I started drifting around move 14 with C4. It might be a mistake because it gives my opponent a half open file but it feels like there is more to it than that. What move should I have played at move 14 and why?
