  Knight13: 3...e5! is like the best move ever. But after a while the queen looked like it's already been placed on a good square on e2.

  Knight13: <35...b5 A good move, and putting White on the defensive, as he cannot advance the Pawn, or it would be lost, Black being able to attack it four times, by Ra6, Rba8, Nb7, etc.> Black forgot to mention that 35. Bb3 is bad. Rab1 was the proper move.
