Did I play well or did he screw up?

That exchange solves his inactive bishop problem.
Piling up on pinned piece but neglecting to castle.
Prevents black from castling kingside.
Striving to clear the way for queenside castling.
Castling was called for. Black bishop did not need to move.
Moving him provided white with the crucial tempo he needed to keep the pressure on the
uncastled black king.
A queen retake on the e7 would obviously expose him to an attack allong the e file with a white rook losing the queen pinned agsainst the king..
A king that had lost his chance to castle queenside when the bishop lost a tempo with B-b6.
Cutting off communication between rooks and keeping black's h1 Rook out of the game for now and needs at least two tempos to activate him along the first rank with a pawn move and a king move. Add that to the tempo lost with the move B-b6 and that makes three lost tempos.
Forks the king and the loose queen.
King must move and the unprotected queen is lost.
The question is could black have held on longer by moving somewhere else instead of into a discovered attack with a check.
Well, 18....Q-f6 isn't possible either because the knight would fork queen and king by going to d7.
The only available defensive move I see is P--f6. It isn't threatening to take the knight since it is pinned and doesn't prevent a check on d7, but it prevents mate on f7 and is better than the other two blunders.
Please note that all games no matter what level are lost by one or the other player making some mistake based on oversight.
You definitely deserve credit for noting the black king's vulnerability and for your skill in honing in on it with the pieces.
