  Honza Cervenka: Instead of 13...Bb7 or 14...Qb8 black should have played e7-e6. After 15.g4 white got clearly superior position and gave no chance to black for recovery. Of course, 22...Qxg2 was no option for 23.Rd2 trapping the Queen, and 23...Qxg2 24.Rd2 Qxh3 25.Rh2 leads to the same result, though after 25...e5 26.dxe6 e.p. Rxe6 27.Rxh3 (27.Rxe6 Qxf3 allows black Queen to escape.) 27...Rxe1+ 28.Kd2 Re4 black has Rook, Bishop and Pawn for his lost Queen, and it could have been his best practical chance to save the game. Nice game by Yury Balashov.
