Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-23-10  birthtimes: White committed back-to-back lemons here, first with 35. Be5 and then with 36. Qe1. Time trouble was the most likely cause, since 36. Qxe2 is clearly better (although still losing) than 36. Qe1.

Also, 34. Qd7 is much better than retreating the queen to d1, but again, it seems likely that White did not have enough time to calculate the variations, and Nezh makes quick work of it, starting with his 36th move...

Jun-29-13  pradeep1143: Did white miss 17.bxc4?
Jun-29-13  Nerwal: <Did white miss 17.bxc4?>

No. After 17. bxc4 bxc4 the passed pawns on c4-d4 provide full compensation for the piece (eg 18. ♗b1 d3 19. ♘g3 d5! 20 e5 ♘e4 with tremendous activity). Actually at this point white's pieces are so passive he should already think about the best way to give back the piece (18. ♗b2!?, or maybe 18. ♘xd4). So 17. ♘xd4 is a sensible way to avoid all these problems.

Finish is beautiful. Model combined use of mate and promotion threats. Of course white had a clear advantage beforehand, but those types of position are extremely volatile, especially in time trouble, so what the position is to begin with is only of secondary importance.
