  InspiredByMorphy: 24. ...c5 ? Is the losing blunder. 24. ...Qa2 looks like it wins as f7 is then defended adequately, and black is 4 pawns up.

  Honza Cervenka: <24. ...Qa2 looks like it wins as f7 is then defended adequately, and black is 4 pawns up.> Well, black is 4 pawns up but also a piece down. After 24...Qa2 25.Rg3 white's attack looks very dangerous. For example 25...Qd2 (protecting h6) 26.Qf3 b5 27.Rxg7+!! Kxg7 28.Qf6+ Kg8 29.Ng6!! with mate or 26...Bd5 27.Qf5 or 26...Rd5 27.Qf6 . Also 25...Kh8 (instead of 25...Qd2) doesn't look well for black after 26.Qh4 (with threat 27.Rxg7!) 26...Rfe8! 27.Qe4! (27.Rxg7 Kxg7 28.Qf6+ Kg8 29.Ng6 Kh7 30.Nf8+ Kg8 31.Ng6=) and black has nothing better than 27...Rxd3 with a Rook for 4 Pawns and advantage of white.
