Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-11-06  AdrianP: "By playing here 22 ...Bc5+ 23. Kh1 Ne6 Black could have achieved a perfectly acceptable position.

But he played 22. ...Ne6+ assuming that the bishop at d6 could not be taken on account of 23. Rxd6 Rxd6 24. Qxd6 Rd8. However, in his preliminary calculations, he overlooked that White can reply 25. Nd7! and after 25. ...Qxd6 26. Rxd6 the move 26. ...Nf8 is refuted by 27. Nf6+. 26. ...Kh8 also does not help, if only because of 27. Ne5.

The most interesting thing is that White believed Black, that the piece could not be taken, and replied 23 g3." ('Chess Middlegames: Essential Knowledge' Averbakh).
