  GrahamClayton: I am surprised that I am the first person to comment on such a brilliant game.

White cannot accept the Queen sacrifice immediately, due to 10. ♗xd8 ♘xf3+ 11. gxf3 ♗xf2+ 12. ♔f1 ♗h3#.

12. O-O fxe2 13. ♕d2 exf1=♕+ 14. ♖xf1 ♖xd8, and Black has too much compensation for the Queen.

20...♘c1! is a problem-like move, not only threatening mate by 21...♖e1# but also keeping the a1-rook out of the game.

Apr-04-15  sobic: Beautiful game!!!
Feb-06-17  Paarhufer: Beautiful game! But what about 19.. ♖ce2 (20.♖f1 ♖e1)? Looks much easier.

The queen sac 9.. ♘xe4! could be answered with 10.dxe4 ♘xf3+ 11.♗xf3 ♕xg5 12.♕xd5 and Black has some compensation for the pawn.
