  kingscrusher: Quite an interesting game! - I have video annotated it here:-

Apr-30-13  Tim Delaney: I would think 23. Bd4 is simplest. If 23 ... Ng5 24. Qg3 seals the deal. Once the pesky f3 pawn is eliminated, black has no hope. 24 ... Qc2 does nothing for black: 25. g2xf3 Bf5, 26. e4
Nov-09-15  DarthStapler: 29....Rxh8 30. Rxa7+ Kg8 and then what? 31. f5 Bf7 32. Ra8+ Kg7, or something? What next?
Nov-09-15  Nerwal: <29....Rxh8 30. Rxa7+ Kg8 and then what?>

Everything wins easily, but 31. b5 cxb5 32. c6 is the most straightforward.

  Fischerfriend: better 13..Qc6: -in stead of 13..bc- 14.bc Bc5: 15.0-0 and white is only a bit better, I read in 'Bobby Fischer 3, 1968-192'.
