  Honza Cervenka: 16.Nf5 was a mistake, which got white into troubles. These troubles became apparent after 18...h5! After opening of h-file white is unable to avoid material losses, for example 19.Rd2 hxg4 20.fxg4 Rh4 21.Rg2 Rah8 ∓ or 19.Ne4 hxg4 20.Nxd6+ cxd6 21.fxg4 Rh4 22.Rd4 Rah8 23.Rad1 Rxh2 (also 23...d5 24.R1d2 Rh3 25.Bf4 c3 26.bxc3 Rxc3 27.Bd6 Nc6 28.Rxd5 Rh4 29.Bg3 Rxg4 looks well for black) 24.Rxd6 Rh1+ 25.Kg2 R8h2+ 26.Kf3 Rxd1 27.Rxd1 Rxc2 etc. Of course, simple 16.Nxe6 was better.
