Queen Pawn Structure Chigorin

I won the Queen Pawn Chigorin game as Black when White captured the wrong way. In the process, I got a winning pawn structure even though the material was even. ChessNoobComp was frustrating for me to play because I am so much slower in blitz than I used to be 20 years ago. Twice my time expired while I was playing the checkmating move.
