25.Qh3 defends very well.
Consider then 25...Rge6 26.Bc1! (26.Qxh1?? Nd2+ 27.Rxd2 Rxe1#).

  jessicafischerqueen: From <Karpova>:

"0-1 The winner of a game is the one who has made the next to last blunder" (Tartakover) is a fitting description. Both players were still very young."

Apr-25-11  bolek88: 26.Qxd5 Rf3+
Apr-26-11  Pygeum Lycopene: After 26.Qb5 it took some time to find the win for black. 26...Rf3 - Ng3 28.Kf2 - Qh2m. If they had played this out it would be perfect puzzle material. we've lost so many puzzles due to resignations!
