  al wazir: 24. Nf5 would have been interesting.

After 24...Qh7 25. Rad1, white is threatening 26. Nxd6, so black just about has to play 25...Be5, and now 26. Nh4 looks strong

Why not 24. Nf5 <Qxd2> so that 26. Rd1 <Qxg2+> and after the smoke clears, Black is two pawns up in the endgame, albeit with bishops of opposite colors.

  catlover: Bone actually had a win against Bobby Fischer. Granted, it was in simultaneous exhibition.

Oct-31-18  petemccabe: It almost seems like Bone must have walked away from the table at move 26, and someone else came up and played Qxa7, which is so obviously bad that even I, who rate maybe 1500, immediately saw it as a blunder. How could a master play that move?

  beatgiant: Is 21. Rae1 enough for White to hold on? (Defends the knight to prevent the game's ...Bxc3 shot.)
Oct-31-18  RandomVisitor: <beatgiant>21.Rae1 Bf4! and black does not give white any time to organize a defense.
Premium Chessgames Member
  beatgiant: <RandomVisitor> To organize a defense against what? Black is threatening to double rooks on the e-file to pile up on e3? Or advance the d-pawn to d4? Black's position looks great, but I'm not seeing a quick knockout yet.

For example, 21. Rae1 Bf4 22. Re2 Re7 23. Rfe1 Bc6 (prevents Bb5 as an answer to Rfe8) 24. Nf1. Maybe White can relieve some of the pressure by trading a pair of rooks.
