Kibitzer's Corner
May-14-09  Brown: On move 17, black sees he has a terrible light-squared bishop, and is willing to sac a pawn with 17..f4!? to prevent it from being entombed by exf5. This move, combined with 19..f5, bring both bishops to life.

29..Rf8 must have been a cold shower for the first player, and one wonder's if white saw it before playing 29.Nxg7.
