  sfm: 24.Qa3?? loses instantly, missing the response. White's final attempt to counterattack backfires in an amusing way!
Jul-02-13  disasterion: In the final position I'd have been tempted to try 31.Bxd5 - after 31... exd5 32.Rxd5 the queen can escape to d8 if black plays h6. Of course white's now down a piece and looks lost anyway, but I'd be hoping for a swindle with something like 31.Bxd5 h6 32.Bxc6 hxg5 33.Rd7+ Qxd7 34.Bxd7

There's probably something better for black than 31... exd5 in any case.

  FSR: <disasterion> Your move is worth a shot, but Black wins easily with 31.Bxd5 Rc1! 32.Rxc1 (32.Bf3 Rxd1+ 33.Bxd1 h6) Qxc1+ 33.Kh2 Qc7! 34.Bf3 h6.
Jul-03-13  disasterion: <FSR> Thanks. Well spotted. Yes, 31... Rc1 is emphatic.
