  wwall: Perhaps best is 14.Bxc4 dxc4 15.O-O.

18.c4 looks better.

Perhaps 20.Qe2 h5 21.Qb5 is best.

21.Rh1? looks like the losing move. Best seems 21.Qd1 Qxh5 22.dxe5 Nxe5 23.Bxe5 fxe5 24.Qxd5.

Not 22.cxd4?? Qxe3+ and 23...Qxg3.

Aug-26-06  Helios727: Was 32. Be1 the blunder it appears to be, or was there a good reason for it?
Aug-26-06  positionalgenius: White has to prevent:
...Nd3+!! 2.Kb1 Nf2+
Apr-16-07  Helios727: Then why not 32. Rf4 ?
Apr-16-07  Yuri54: 32. Rf4 is met by 32.Nd3+, where black wins the rook for free after the white king moves to either c2 or b1.
Apr-16-07  Helios727: So would the best alternative for white be 32. Rgh4 Nd3+ 33. Kb1 Nf2+ 34. Qc2 Qxc2+ 35. Kxc2 Nxh1 36. Rxh1, and that way white only loses the exchange instead of a rook?
Apr-17-07  Yuri54: Seems pretty accurate. Either way, white is down in material.
