Kibitzer's Corner
May-31-12  backrank: This unknown game abounds of Dzindzi's sparkling ideas, all of them aiming at opening lines and diagonals to increase the mobility of his pieces. Instead of the obvious (and strong) 24. Ng5 he plays 25. g4! first (a move computers are unable to find) in order to make the subsequent Ng5 even stronger, after 25. ... fxg4 26. Ng5 e6 (other moves are losing outright) 27. Qxg4 already threatening Nxh7, as well as in the game continuation including an exchange sac (of the Rc5), after which Black appears to lose by force. The final winning manoever (starting with 28. Qxd8) is a nice piece of instruction.

  fredthebear: This is a Reti Opening, not a KIA. (White never plays d3 or e4, like a reversed KID would.)

There are some hazardous pins in this game. Black's dark-squared bishop (21.Bd6!) was quite the traveling salesman. Black's Bc8 is a real dud, tied down to the defense of the pinned b7-pawn. Another case of the threat being stronger than the execution.
