  RandomVisitor: Fine gives 25.fxe3 N2xe3 26.Nxe3 Nxe3 27.Rde1 Qg5 28.Ne4 Nf1 29.Kd1 Qxg1 30.Rxf1 with an attack which is not so easy to meet. But 30...Qxf1 31.Bxf1 Rxe4 and black has a playable position with at least equal chances. 28...Qf4 or 30.Nf6+ = could also be tried.

In the game, 25...Ne1+! 26.Qxe1 or Rxe1?? exf2 .

Nov-17-12  ozmikey: Fine seems to make the win harder than it needed to be here, after gaining a big advantage out of the opening (releasing the tension by 10. c5?! is hardly ideal, and of course 11. b4? is terrible). Instead of 36...Bxc2, for instance, he could have won a piece cold by 36...Nd3+.
