  bright1: Why not 23. Bf3xe4 instead of reatreating the bishop to e2 ?
Nov-24-10  slomarko: taking the pawn was playable but it's not clear to me if it's really better then the text. for example after 23...Re8 24.Bh7 Ne5

white needs to worry about g6. another option was to avoid taking on h7 by playing for example Bf5 but then black goes Rxe3 and white can't get an easy draw with Bd7 Kd7 Rfd1 Ke7

  Sastre: <23.Bxe4 Re8 24.Bf5 Rxe3 25.Bxd7 Kxd7 26.Ra1 Re2+ 27.Kc3 Rxg2 28.Rhf1 Re2> leaves White a pawn down, although this looks no worse than the game continuation.
