In the final position of the game, it looks like the threat of 29...e5# is fatal. A typically wild Mikenas game.

White's king is far too exposed to allow his queen to be dragged out of play on h6. Instead 19. Bh4 avoids the facepalm moment.
Excellent picture, BTW!

|Aug-01-12|| ||PeaceRequiresAnarchy: I usually click through the Game of the Day very rapidly (maybe about a minute total) and then try to guess which move (if any) really hurt the eventual-loser's chances.|
Usually seeing how the game ends helps to identify a plan that went wrong.
Today I saw that 19.Bh4 lead to white's queen being stranded on h4 until the end of the game and so I picked that move as being white's worst move.
I usually don't check to see if the move I selected really was a bad move with deeper analysis or a computer, but I do skim through the comments to see if someone else mentioned the move.
Thanks to <Once>'s insightful comment, it appears my guess was correct: <Once: Fritz thinks that it starts to go wrong for white with 19. Bh6> Your comments are appreciated, Once.
I love the chess community on this website. Thanks, people.
