Reti Gambit against a 1800 player

Today, I played a Reti Gambit against an 1800 player on playchess . The Game progressed to the position below which may lead to a possibility of two strong bishop pointing to blacks Kingside. The bishop in front of the queen often leads to some tactics .

My opponent has just played a4 starting an attack on my castled position. white to move, I noticed Nxe5 pxe5, Qxe5+ Kh8 . If rook blocks then Bc4 with pressure.

After shuffling the rook back and forth a few times, black decides to play a4 ??.

Then comes BXf6!!. The bishop can not be captured since knight take loses the queen and pawn take leads to QXh7 checkmate so he plays ..rg8 .

This loses to Bc4 with the battery that can't be stopped. Nice to have a game against a strong player where I got in some tactical shots. Perhaps this Ct-art stuff is working.....

Play through the complete game here
