  WTHarvey: Fwiw, 20. ... Bd3+ is a mate in 4, eg 21.Qxd3 Qh1+ 22.Nxh1 Rxh1+ 23.Ke2 Re1#

  tpstar: <WTHarvey> Great pickup! The brilliant 20 ... Bd3+! wins, but instead 20 ... Qxc4+!? and White quickly pulls it out. Amazing turnaround.
Feb-27-10  BobCrisp: <...and at this stage Black lost on time. Yasser had written the move 24...Be4 on the scrap of paper, but forgot to hand it to the arbiter, and so quietly waited until his time ran out. The final position was roughly equal.>
