A Game with Demre Kerigan (Turkey)

Tonight i played an interesting blitz game (draw) with a young boy from Turkey , Demre Kerigan (demo05). He's 13 years old and he said that he was 1st in his age range in Turkey with a score of 7.5/9 .
He has lived 5 years in Holland and speak dutch,turkish and a little english.
His website is (in Turkish)

In the game i produced a very speculative sacrifiece and found that it is the Fritz second choice move. Demre later blunder on move 26 but unfortunetly i failed to find the best continuation and only managed to draw the game.

Here are the position after white 24 move :
