Jun-14-08  danielguo999444: Heavily exposed black king.Ouch.In the endgame,I mean.
Jun-14-08  whiteshark: <23.Ne6! Qxb4! 24.Nxf8+ Rxf8 25.Nxb4 > wasn't bad at all.

Jun-15-08  whiteshark: 24...Qxd5?? was the decisive blunder. After 25.Nf5! (threating 26.Qf4) black can't defend h6.

But <24...a5!> could prevent this, e.g. <25.Qc3 Qxd5 26.Nf3 c6>, about equal.
