|Nov-10-16|| ||Delboy: Nice game until 29. Qxd3, which could be a time scramble blunder, and should have prompted immediate resignation. Is there anything terminal after 29. Qg2?|

I see only good things for black...

white either thought "Ho ho! A FREE piece!", having missed ...Nf2+, or he thought the game was lost anyway and thought he'd try to cause problems with his queenside pawns. I think it was the Ho ho concept.

|Nov-10-16|| ||chessgames.com: <Nice game until 29. Qxd3, which could be a time scramble blunder> It's possible that ...Nf2+ was overlooked but if you stick Stockfish on the position, it finds that 29.Qxd3 is actually the best move, relatively.|
One of the more testing lines goes 29.Qg2 Bf1 30.Qc2 Rf5 31.Kh4 Bg3+ 32.Kg1 Be1 and now White must play QxN to avoid Nf6#.
The move that's actually suspect may be 26.Rxh7
|Nov-10-16|| ||marcusantoinerome: 28. Kg4 seems suspect to me. Walking into the King-Rook fork. |
The only way out is 28. Rf7 Rxf7 29. gxf7+ Kxf7, but with White's c-pawn about to fall, I don't see much hope for White in the Q v 2B+N ending.
|Nov-10-16|| ||kevin86: White hang onto long! Knight and bishop down for only two pawns!|

|Nov-10-16|| ||Bubo bubo: A game where a queen gets traded for three minor pieces already by move 11 is rare, and so is a GOTD with no prior kibitzing! |
Unfortunately the odd balance of powers didn't yield a particularly interesting game: White never managed to show off his queen.

Generally true, but there is a line in the Gruenfeld where this has often happened, though it is considered unfavourable for Black.
