May-30-10  Dr. Funkenstein: is 23. ...Bc6 any better intending Rd8 or Qd8 (if 24. Qd6) or is black already lost at this point?
Feb-28-11  dzhafner: Black has already lost by move 23.

23) Qd3 ... Bc6
24) Qd6 ...Qd8
25) Qc5 ...Bd7
26) Nb6

or if
25 ... Qxd1
26) Kxd1 ... 0-0-0
27) Ke2 with mating threats based around Nb6 and Qa6.

Another cute line is
24) b4 which could lead to a winning end game

b4 ...Rd8
bxa5 ...Rxd3
cxd3 (Rxd3 ...bxa4 Bc7 fails to ...Bd7) ...bxa4
Kd2 ...Kd7
Ke3 ...Ra8
Bc3 ...Rc8
Rb1 ...h5
Kf4

24) Bc3 ...Qc7
however seems to offer less of an advantage.

My free engine says 12) ...Nd5 was a better way to exchange off the dark bishops than Ng4.
