May-02-12  Everett: 26.Nxh4? Why open up lines vs your own king?
Premium Chessgames Member
  RookFile: I think white is already dead at that point.
Aug-08-12  Everett: You may be right. After <26.Nxd6 Qxh3 27.gxh3 Rhg8+ 28.Kf1 Bd3+ 29.Re2 Rxe2> Black is winning.

By move 20 Bronstein has managed to sac a pawn, but enjoys two bishops and a half-open g-file leading directly to the White king.

Aug-08-12  Everett: White must have missed the mate after 30..Rf4+! which appears after <31.Bxf4 Bd3+ 32.Re2 Rg1#>
