  Chessical: This looks like a loss on time, rather than a loss due to the position on the board.
Nov-16-03  fred lennox: I believe black can win two pawns. Bh6...Qxa2, Nb3...Qa4, Bg5...Qe4, Rd2...Qe1+, Rd1...Qf2, Rd2...Qf1+, Rd1...Qxg2. An exposed king can add power to the enemy queen.

The score to this game appears to be mistaken. I think that the real game is Ljubojevic vs Miles, 1979 where you can see that the first 25 and a half moves are the same as here, with the game then continuing 26...Kxf7 27.Nxd4 Kxf8, when Black goes on to win in 60 moves.

Nov-16-03  fred lennox: <Eggman> has to be right. 27...a6 makes no sense. Why protect the b pawn instead of Qxf8?
Feb-03-04  lordhazol: Lujubojevich had deserved immortal with 20-Bxd5.I think this game is not immortal but immemorable.The other moves not helps white after 20... Rxd6 (Black threats Ng4 and e5 ect.) In these days GMs not playing Dragon causes while they play dragon their sweats comes from their hips.(look at this game)
Mar-20-05  ArturoRivera: what if 18.-...exf6?
Mar-23-05  SicilianDragon: <arturoRivera> I assume you mean 18...exd6. This move simply loses the queen to 19. Bxd8
Apr-24-06  stanleys: 24.Bxf8 seems to be a mistake.Instead 24.Bxf7+ and white is better
Jan-04-08  Atking: <stanleys: 24.Bxf8 seems to be a mistake.Instead 24.Bxf7+ and white is better> Not so obvious. Probably 24.Bb3 keeping the options under control was better. On 24.Bxf7+ (Neither good is 24.Rxf7 RxRf7 25.BxRf7+ Kh7 with 26...Be5. To say 26.Bg5 Be5 27.Nc4!? bxN 28.RxBd7 Qg1+ 29.Rd1 Bxb2+ Black is clearly better) 24...RxBf7 25.RxRf7 Qe5 26.Rf8+ Kh7 looks nearly equal. 27.Rd1 Bg4 28.Rdf1 Qe2 Neither White or Black have enough fuel to make a decisive conclusion. Waiting fo more by 24.Bb3 Bxb2+ 25.Kb1 Qe5 26.BxRf8 Ba3 27.Bxf7+ KxBf8 28.RxBa3 QxNd6 29.Rxa7 Bf5 30.Bb3 looks good for White.
