Chessblogging: two totally unsound games in the sicilian

I love it when my opponents let me get away with this kind of thing. In two back-to-back blitz games, the first as white, the second as black:

1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 e6 6. Be3 a6 7. Qd2 e5 8. Nb3 Be6 9. O-O-O Bxb3 10. cxb3 Be7 11. Be2 O-O 12. g4 b5 13. g5 Nfd7 14. h4 Nc6 15. Kb1 Qc7 16. h5 b4 17. Nd5 Qd8 18. g6 fxg6 19. hxg6 h6 20. Nxe7+ Nxe7 21. Bxh6 Nxg6 22. Bxg7 Kxg7 23. Qh6+ Kf6 24. Bh5 Qe8 25. Rdg1 Rh8 26. Rxg6+ Ke7 27. Rg7+ Kd8 28. Qg5+ Kc7 29. Bxe8 Raxe8 30. Rxh8 Rxh8 31. Qe7 Rd8 32.

    In the first game, I’m thinking that 16…b4 is a mistake, since it takes away a nice square for the knight on c6 and also essentially forces White to make a good move (Nd5).
