  TheAlchemist: Another quick kill in this variation of the Rubinstein French. 18...Qc5 was a terrible blunder.

18...g6 doesn't help: 19.Rxg6! fxg6 20.Qxg6 Kh8 21.Ng5.

Another possibility is 18...Qf4 19.Rdg1 Rd8 20.Nd2! g6 21.Rf3! Qxd2 22.Rxg6+! Kf8 23.Rxf7+! Kxf7 24.Qh7+ Ke8 25.Rxe6+ Kf8 26.Qe7+ and mate to follow.

Maybe 18...Nf6 is best. 19.Qh4 Ne4 20.Ng5 Qxg5! 21.Rxg5 Nxg5 22.Qxg5, where White has a tough endgame to convert.

Anand vs Van Wely, 2001, 2001 is where 14.Bxh7+ was first played (blindfold!), and another game from the same tournament, Khalifman vs Bareev, 2002, 2002, which appeared in the same tournament. Bareev produced a novelty 13...Be7, but it didn't turn out that well either.

Nov-04-07  sallom89: good game of chess :P
Oct-14-15  TwoMoves: 11...Qxqg2 is a exceptionally risky line for black. 11...e5 is more comfortable

  mycroft2120: On 18. ..g6 simply 19. Rh3 mates. There is no defence.
