|Jun-12-09|| ||vonKrolock: <21...f5>! Simply the best - to complete development, exchange some material (regardless of the hole in 'e6', that can be futurelly controlled by , say, a ), and (not least) to face the threat of xd6...|
<24...h8!> In this context, the cornering move is more a clearing and counter-strike (threat g8) than a purelly defensive measure
<25.e6> If 25.e4, not g8, but simply xe4 followed by xg4 etc
position after <26.g5>

<26...f6!> Against this, there's almost nothing to do...
<27.h4> A last quirk - if now xe6, then g4-g5! and white can hope to escape with an exchange plus, but...
<27...g6-g5>! ow if h5 then g6 with idea of f6
<28.xg5> The rest is silence
