#1025 May Mania - Round 2

Tonight, in round 2 of May Mania, I won an ugly game against Section B's #3 seed:

John Moldovan 1852 - CastleOO 1857

D35 Queen's Gambit
Exchange Variation

My 19.b4? gave Black an edge but he couldn't hold it and blundered with 26...Ra4?? However, I then hung a piece (30.Ne7+??) and missed 3 wins (30.Rc7, 35. Re8 & 38.Qg8+). Finally, my opponent's 50...f4?? turned an equal R-ending into a White victory
