Aug-11-15  JohnBoy: In the final position is there an easier win than 24...Qd8 25.Nf4 Qf8 26.Nh5+ Kg6 27.Bxf6 Kxh5 28.Qg4+ Kh6 29.Qg5+ Kh7 30.Qh5+ Qh6 31.Qf7+ ? There are few enough pieces and a string of forced moves that I can see this through to the end... (unless I am completely wrong).
Aug-11-15  chessbug: I think <JohnBoy> that in your line 26.Nd5 is easier.

  HeMateMe: interesting sac, makes you think about this opening some more.
Aug-12-15  Skakalec: <JohnBoy> or 26.Bxf6 and if Qxf6 Nh5+

  patzer2: The decisive mistake appears to be 19...Be6??

Instead, 19...Be7! maintains Black's strong advantage.

<John Boy> If 24...Qd8, your 25. Nf4! looks to be best.

  cro777: "The theoretical novelty 12.Nxg5 was an (improvised!) piece sac."

Artemiev: "Motylev usually chooses the Slav Defense and I did not expect the Queen's Gambit Accepted. Therefore, I decided to try an off-beat line (3.e3)."

12.Nxg5!? "The sacrifice was very tempting and I could not withstand it!"
