Nice checkmate in Accelerated Dragon after 5.Nxc6

When black played ... g5 , I thought that I can checkmate him soon as his king is weak and it was opposite sides castle. But I missed the move ... Qxd5. In the end win the ending. 

P.S. What is the right way to get advantage from the ... g5 mistake and weakness of black king?

An Anti-Sicilian and I feel I played the position well. I felt like I was in control the whole game.

I have a big advantage, sac a queen for just a knight without direct checkmate, but he was tied down completely!

Using the ideas we learn from  ChessMood to control the opening, and then punishing our opponents mistakes always makes us feel good and know we are learning from a reliable source! Thank you Coach @GM_Avetik_Grigoryan for everything you do!

My opponent blundered his bishop. He thought it was back rank mate, but my bishop can interposed.

This one was against ArtTeo 2440+ in chessmood-tournament 23th August.

It was the last game. 20 secunds left of the tournament and ArtTeo let the time run out...

If else I would have beaten him...

I played this game yesterday. It was a G/90 +30s in the Chess Dojo Round Robin tournament (Chess Dojo is a Discord server run by IM Kostya Kavutskiy, GM Jesse Kraai, and IM David Pruess). This is a Bg5 Modern Maroczy that I studied over the last few days. I am a new PRO member on this site. 

While I had forgotten many variations, I remembered the key ideas, tactical patterns, etc due to Avetik's great explanations. GM Jesse Kraai and IM Kostya Kavutskiy were commentating live on the game and they did not see b5 coming, but it is of course thematic and well known to people who've studied the Modern Maroczy. From there on, I played mainly for activity not really caring much about the e7 pawn. GM Kraai thought white was doing fine but I disagreed with that assessment (when I checked their stream after my game) because I think white has many ways to go wrong and black had the safer position due to superior activity of the pieces, and that was borne out in the game. 

I'm usually an attacking player and always have had issues facing the Maroczy but this is the first time where I felt like I knew the positions deeper and had an arsenal of ideas I could draw upon. Hope you enjoy the game!

Game 3 in this lichess study: https://lichess.org/study/aM6aYB3o, I've also attached a gif.

Nice positional game. I took advantage of space advantage and created a weakness in the dark squares. I tried not to hurry and improve my pieces before attacking

Nice win against French with tactics. During game I was not sure with the rook sacrifice, it was a desperation. But engine confirm that it was the best move.
