  plang: The pawn grab 16 Nxh6 allowed 16..f5! giving Black excellent counterplay; one possibility was 17 g4..cxd 18 cxd..fxg 19 Nf7..Rdf8 20 Bxg6..Rhg8 21 h5..Rg7 22 h6..Rxg6 23 h7..Rxf7 24 h8(Q)..Nf8 (24..Rf8 would be safer 25 Qe3..Rxf3 26 Qe2..Qb4+ 27 Kc1 and White has two queens but the position is not entirely clear. The queen exchange was forced as 24 Qxe4?..Rh5 25 f4..Rf5 26 g3..Qd5 27 Qxg5..Rfxd5 is strong for Black.
