22...Qa4 23. Rdc2 Kg7 24. Rc4 Qd7 25. b3 Qd2 26. Qf3 Qd7 and if now

27. Rc7?! Rac8! 28. Rxd7 Rxc1+ 29. Kh2 Rxd7 and Black is better.

So after 26. ... Qd7 27. g4 Rac8 and Black is doing well.

As it was played it helped White but it didn't need to get there.

  Richard Taylor: As it was played Black was not in a bad position even after Qh5 by White although it was practically more difficult:

22. ... Rac8

23. Rxc8 Rxc8 24. Qh5 Kg7 25. Rd7
Rf8 26. Qe2 a5 27. Qd2 ....

There are no problems for Black now she could have improved from here

27. ... Rc8

and now if say

28. Qd4+ Kg6 29. Qe4+ Kg7 30. Qf3 Rf8 31. Qc6 b5 32. Qc1 Qc4

and the position is equal.

  Richard Taylor: If White allows Black to get two rooks for a Queen in most of the positions above Black is much better as the rooks can attack the White pawns easily. And the King is safe enough. Black actually played the opening of this game pretty well.
