  wwall: Perhaps 23.d5 instead of 23.Rad1.

Perhaps 25.Re4 instead of 25.Qa6.

Perhaps 26.Bb1 instead of 26.Qxa7.

If 29.Bxc2? bxc2 30.Qa4 (30.b4 or 30.Qc6 and 30...Rd1 wins) 30...Qxb2 and 31...c1=Q wins.

Apr-19-08  xombie: Seems to me that White is rather well placed by move between moves 15-20.

Look at the position at 17. Centralized Knights, good mobility etc.

And at move 20 white could have moved the e-knight to d6 occupying the square and threatening the rook. There were also some possibilities on the f-file. But they probably saw deeper.

Sep-28-12  xombie: What happens if white takes on b5 on move 18?

18. Nxb5 Nb4 19. axb4 Bxb5 maybe?

I looked at mate threats on g2, but after 18 ... Qg5 19. Nc3 Nf4 white simply has 20. Qg3 it seems.
