  Telemus: Position after White's 22th move:

Why not 22.. ♗xd1? Well, the following spectacular forced line is best play: 23.♕f6! ♗xf6 24.gxf6 ♕xd5+! 25.exd5 ♖e2+! and Black's gets the better rook ending. (The sacrifices are all forced, but Black can swap ♗xf6/♕xd5).

Bouwmeester's text move 22.. ♗xf3 is even better, but why didn't he play 25.. ♕xd5-+ in this position?

Now, obviously, Bouwmeester -wots in a name?- expected 14. f4

But White is lost then:

14... Bxc3 15. Qxc3 Nxe2 16. Nxe2 Bxg4

Any way, after 13... Be5 14. Bd3 f5 15. gxf5 gxf5 16. O-O-O fxe4 17. Nxe4 Nxe4 18. Rg2+ Kh8 19. Bxe4 Qf6 20. Ne2 Bxb2+ 21. Kb1 Ba3 22. Nd4 Bc5 23. c3 Bd7 24. Rg5 Bxd4 25. cxd4 Qf7 26. Rdg1 Rg8 27. Qc2 Rac8 28. R1g2 Bh3 29. R2g3 Bd7 30. Rg1 Bb5 31. R1g2 Bf1 32. Rg1 Bb5 it's probably a draw:

15... b5 16. Nxb5 Be5 17. Rhh1 Qf6 18. g5 Qxf3 19. Qd3 Bg4 20. Nec3 Qxd3 21. Rxd3 c4 22. Rd2 Rab8=

Therefore 15... a4 was better.
