  Honza Cervenka: 11...Bg4! would have busted white's opening play as then two white pieces (Bg5 and Nf3) are hanging. 12.Nd5 with idea 12...Bxf3 13.Nxb6 axb6 14.Qxf3 doesn't save white for simple 14...Ne5. Also 12.h4 Bxf3 13.gxf3 h6 leads nowhere.

19...Ne4 looks strange but 19...Bb8 20.Rfe1 is pretty hopeless for black too. White even did not bother with taking that poor Bishop and continued with direct attack against the king in the centre. 24...Qg5 25.f4 or 24...Qe5 25.Qf3 Qg5 26.Nf5 would not have been better.

Aug-01-09  DWINS: You're absolutely right about 11...Bg4, <Honza>.

Also, 25.Nh5 is stronger than 25.Nf5 as it wins Black's queen rather than just a piece.

25.Nh5 Qe5 loses to the wicked shot 26.Qh3! which threatens Black's queen along with 27.Qc8# OR

25.Nh5 Qg5 26.f4 Qh4 27.g3 OR

25.Nh5 Qh4 26.g3 Qg5 27.f4

May-17-13  Twocolors: You are both right of course. However there is still a little trick after: 11..Bg4 12.Ne2!? Bxf3 13.Qxf3, hoping for 13..Qxg5? (Correct would be 13..Ne5), when suddenly white strikes with 14.Qxf7+ Kd8 15.Qf8+ and wins.
