Nov-16-08  percyblakeney: 25. Rxe6 is a very pretty move by Harikrishna, fxe6 is impossible because of 26. Bxe6+ Kh7 27. Qf3 (for example followed by 27. ... Bh6 28. Qh3 g5 29. Qd3+ Kg7 30. Rxc3):

  Eyal: 22.g4 prevents Black from countering 23.d6 with 23...exd6, because after 24.Bxf7+ Kxf7 25.Bxd6+ Black wouldn't have Qf5. Black's decisive mistake was 24...Red8? allowing the pretty Rxe6, but he already was under quite a lot of pressure at this point. In the final position, Black has no adequate defence against White's combined threats of Be3 (with a double attack on f7 and the queen), Rxf7, and Rc7 winning the knight.
Nov-17-08  computer chess guy: <Eyal: Black's decisive mistake was 24. .. Red8?> True, but 22. .. ♘b6 was also bad: 22. .. b5 or ..b6 would be better, keeping the path of the pawn blocked and preventing the discovered attack on b7.
