Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-06-14  Karpova: 14...f5: <Taking the initiative.> An interesting alternative, not mentioned, was 14...Bxh3, which suggests that White shouldn't have weakened f3 with 14.Nf1.

Again not annotated, but I wonder if White could have put up more resistance after 20.Kg1 (then 20...Rxc3 21.Qxc3, while 20.Kh2 Rxc3 21.Qxc3 is met with 21...Ng4+).
