  patzer2: In this struggle, White missed an early chances to gain the advantage and later on a chance to win the game.

Instead of <13. Nxd5?>, perhaps he should have played the Fritz 8 line 13. Nxe4 Nb4 14. Qa4 Nd3+ 15. Kf1 f5 16. Ng5 Nxc5 17. Nxe6 Nxa4 18. Nxd8 Rfxd8 19. g4 fxg4 20. Bxg4 Rab8 21. f4 Bxb2 22. Rb1 Bxc1 23. Rxc1 Rb7 24. Rg1 Re7 25. Ke2 (+1.25 @ 13 depth).

In place of the weak <21. Bg4?>, he should have played to trap the piece and win the game with 21. g3! Qf6 22. Bg4! Ra6 23. Rd2!Qh6 24. Kg2 Qg5 25. Rad1 Bxg3 26. fxg3 h5 27. Be2 h4 28. g4! Qe5 29. Bxa6 Qg3+ 30. Kh1 Qh3+ 31. Kg1 Bxa6 32. Re1 Qg3+ 33. Rg2 Qf3 34. Bc7 Bd3 35. Qc3 (+5.50 @ 14 dept, Fritz 8).
