Here is one I messed up as Fritz says "instead of just simply winning the game" . Other than that a well played game. See the board view black to move (find the mate)

    I see a scorching double-check for mate with Nf3++. Had to stare at it for about a minute though. Throwing one's knight out in front of an attacking pawn isn't a natural impulse though, so not an easy one to see. Very nice build-up of your attack too.
