Premium Chessgames Member This is the correct score of this game being discussed recently. Note that it was a match and not a simul.
Jun-05-09  Brown: Interesting play from moves 19-26. White wins the exchange, black uses his tempo to harass the king.

Black probably does better with <25..Qxd4 26.Nxa8 h3>

A star defensive move is 28.d5!, blocking the long diagonal to the white king while opening the one to the black king.

31..Nd3! cutting off the Q from the 3rd rank defense keeps black's hopes alive. If <32.Kxg2 Qg4+ 33.Kh1 Qf3+ and mate>

Of course not <33.Rxg4?? Qxg4 and black wins, for 34.Rg1 Nf2#>

There are still some pitfalls if white is careless. If <36.fxe4 Qf3+ 37.Rg2 Qf1+ 38.Rg1 Nf2+> and black wins.
