  tamar: Bok took 2 min:33 sec for 25...Qa5?
Then Zhao Xue took 5:01 to play 26 Nxd5, and Bok 10:57 to play 26...Rxe3

He might have gone into this mess thinking he could play 26...Qxd2 27 Rxe7+ Kf8 28 Nxd2 cxd5

Black is a piece up and the e7 rook is hanging, but White has the only move to win 29 Rce1

Game Collection: BLOCKING COMBINATIONS: OBSTRUCTING SQUARE/LINE 39 g4-g5! blocks Black h6-bishop along c1-g6 diagonal

Jan-27-16  ndg2: I was looking for this game for a long time (could only remember the nxd5 combination). Before the blunder 25..Qa5 black actually is better, no?

Would need a bit more manouvering like Qb7 (idea Qb4) and Bf8 to protect E7) but in the long run black should be better wirh the bishop pair and the dominance on the open files.
