  wwall: After 11.Qxa7, perhaps best is 11...Bd6. But Black played 11...Ra8?, and after 12.Bxc6 Qxc6, White can win the rook after 13.Nxc6 Rxa7 14.Nxa7 instead of 13.Qxa8+ Bxa8 14.Nxc6 Bxc6 as in the game.

After 20.fxe4, Black could have tried 20...Ng4 instead of 20...Bg4. 20...Ng4 21. h3 Bc5+ 22.Kf1 f5 and Black may have some chances.
