No sooner was the pawn bait taken by 17.Qc2xh7 when the trap door closed on the queen by f5. This again shows that the queen should not go hunting down distant pawns alone and leaving the home camp without its best defender. The result was a gain of the exchange of rook over knight and a later resignation.

  Breunor: 17 Qxh7 is indeed the problem for white as many here have said. Stockfish recommends opening the b file with b3:

1) +1.78 (23 ply) 17.b3 cxb3 18.Nxb3 Nxb3 19.Rxb3 Qc6 20.Bxh6 Bxh6 21.dxe5 fxe5 22.Rxe5 Ree7 23.Kg2 Qg6 24.Qxg6 hxg6 25.Rxe7 Rxe7 26.Rb5 Bg7 27.Nd4 Re5 28.Rc5+ Kd7 29.Nb5 Ke8 30.Nd6+ Ke7 31.Nxb7 Kf7 32.Nd6+ Ke6

After the game move, we have:

1) -0.50 (24 ply) 17...f5 18.b4 cxb3 19.Nxb3 Rh8 20.Nc5 Qxb1 21.Qg6 Qb6 22.Qxb6 axb6 23.Nxd7 Kxd7 24.dxe5 Nc6 25.e6+ Kc8 26.Rd1 Ng4 27.Rxd5 Rd8 28.c4 Nf6 29.Rxd8+ Kxd8 30.Be3 Ke7 31.Bxb6 Kxe6 32.Nd4+ Nxd4 33.Bxd4 Bf8 34.a4 Ne4 35.Kg2 Bd6

So this move cost about 2.4, it is the game changer.
