Jan-05-13  thomastonk: <Rookfile: 11. g3? Are you serious?> This move doesn't look nice, but my Houdini "thinks" it is best! 11.h3 Bxf3 12.Bxf3 Nf4 is worse.

BTW, Houdini more or less likes the play of both sides until 26.Qg4?

My guess is that 26.Qg4 was intended to stop black from playing g6. Unfortunately, this has the drawback of shutting in the bishop on f5 and doesn't really even stop g6 anyway, which black aptly demonstrated by 26...Nf8! After that, white either has to lose the b3 pawn or get his bishop trapped.
