Nov-12-11  mikhs: I don't get it... is the score incorrect or the result? ... or did black lose on time? it seems that 27... Qxe4 should be winning for black

  tpstar: It would be great if one of the players could correct the gamescore. Until then, 17 ... 0-0-0!? seems strategically suspect, and 21. Bxh6?! appears to be an unsound sacrifice, so this may not be a model game to study in the Sicilian Kan.

The most likely explanation is a missing move pair near the end: 27. Rxf6 Kb7 (27 ... Bb7?? 28. cxd5) 28. Ne4 1-0. Still Black should have played 25 ... Nxd5 instead of the exchange sacrifice.

  tpstar: <whiteshark> Thank you! Of course.

Using 21. Bxf6 gxf6 instead, here's the final position:
