  Honza Cervenka: 24.Nxb5 would have been better, although after 24...Qg8 25.Nxc3 Rxc2 26.Ne2 Qg2 black has also decisive advantage.

A fairly clearcut example of
'the last mistake'. So 24 Rd1 or
24 Rc1 would be box, then. For example, 24 Rc1 Qb6 25 Rh4 (White's still down a pawn tho - just not
immediately losing).
Jan-09-17  kramnov: 17. G5! Deep positional sacrifice
