  patzer2: Black seems to have missed several defensive opportunities to hold, including 17...exd5! and 19...Qc7!

Perhaps 17...exd5! 18. Nxd5 Nxd5 19. Rxd5 Be6 20. Rb5 Bxc4 21. Qxc4 Bd6 22. Qxc7 Bxc7 23. Nc4 b6 24. Rc1 would have improved over the game with drawing chances for Black.

Instead of 19...Bxe5?, Black could have held with the defensive double attack 19... Qc7! 20. dxc8=Q Raxc8 21. Bxe6 fxe6 22. Ng6 Rfe8 23. Ne4= with about even chances after the piece exchanges.
