Mar-28-07  Fisheremon: After 16...Nb8?! Black's got into a big trouble, but White missed 20.Nc3! on the way to a huge positional advantage, quite likely enough for a win.
Apr-11-08  Knight13: 37. Rxd6 Kxd6 38. gxh5 gxh5 39. h4 is a dead draw.
Dec-23-18  sakredkow: Two other sources I looked at said the move was 34...h6 - not 34...h5.

20. Qb2+ also looks reasonable, as does 20. Ne5. I don't think this kind of position allows for sudden huge advantages as long as the players play sensibly.
