Multiple pins and a Weak Back Rank

I reached the following position from a Sicilian Defense – Wing Gambit in a 20 minute game on Chess.com and found it interesting because of the multiple pins and back rank weakness. I used about 5 minutes on my 25th move just to make sure I wasn’t making any nasty miscalculations.

I played a couple other games against the same opponent and my final score was +2 -0 =1, but I don’t think it should have been that good. One game saw me losing but we eventually reached a Q+P vs. Q+P ending that is going to take me some time to analyze…maybe I’ll post it if it’s interesting enough.
