  tpstar: After 16. b3 Kh8 White scores better, then 17. h4 has the best results = Opening Explorer This game has the move number off by one due to the interpolation of 2 ... e6 & 7. Bf4.

22 ... e4?! 23. g5 traps the Bishop, so maybe Black had to try 22 ... g6 and brave White's Kingside Pawn storm.

25. Qxe4 hits h7 so Black doesn't have time to pin the Queen on the e file; 25 ... Rfe8? 26. Rxh7+ Kg8 27. Ne7+ Kf8 28. Rh8#. Double Checks are always fun.

Great stalemate trap at the end.
