Cannot make up my mind. Here (White to play)

Did White deliberately play 19.Nde2 to allow the coming Knight fork on d3.

Or was it a mistake and White made a good fist of it.

One senses there was something there. Here (White to play )

22.Nf4 (instead of 22.Nh5 which is where I got the 22,Nf4 idea from) with the threat of N's-h5 looks OK and appears to maybe prevent Reti from playing Nxe1. Don't know what happens after that but it's tricky.

Odd time to resign. White has played 27.Bc2 and resigned. (or maybe score is incomplete.)

White is threatening Bxh7+ Rxh7 Nxf6+ I for one would have waited to see what Black played and then possibly pondered resigning.
