  patzer2: If black plays 15. ..Be7 (instead of 15. ..Qd7), the computer gives the following winning white variations:

(5.83) 16. Rxf7 Rxf7 17. Qxf7+ Kd7 18. Qf5+ Kd6 19. Qe6+ Kc7 20. Qxe5+ Qd6 21. Qxe7+ Qxe7 22. Bxe7 Re8 23. Bf6 Kd6

(5.44) 16. Rxf7 Qxd3+ 17. Bxd3 Rxf7 18. Qxe5 Rd8 19. Kd2 Rf2+ 20. Ne2 Rd7

(5.24) 16. Rxf7 Qxd3+ 17. Bxd3 Rxf7 18. Qxe5 Rd8 19. Kd2 Kf8

(5.50) 16. Rxf7 Qxd3+ 17. Bxd3 Rxf7 18. Qxe5 c5 19. Nd5

(2.12) 16. Rxf7 Rxf7 17. Qxf7+ Kd7 18. Qf5+ Kc7 19. Qxe5+ Kd7 20. Be6+ Ke8 21. Qh8+ (Note that after 21. ..Bf8 BxQ the evaluation favors white much more than the 2.12 computer evaluation)

P.S. - patzer2, why is this game in you Opening Blunders section if the game goes on for 30 moves and into the endgame?
