  Mateo: A very interesting game. 22.Qg4? was a blunder. Kostic could play 22...Qg6! (instead of 22...Nf4? actually played), threatening ...a4 as well as ...Nf6, and Black has the upper hand. Then, after 23.Red1, the forced variation beginning with 23...a4 could be a beautiful puzzle. 24...axb3!! was brilliant. 28.Bxg5+! was the way to draw.
