  OBIT: To expand on the previous comment, Radulov played 23...h6 ten years later in Hamburg. The game (vs Jacoby) is not in this database. The continuation went:

24. Qxh6 (if 24. Re1 Rxg5) Re2! (threatening ...Rxg2+ with a mating attack, e.g. 25. Bxf4 Rxg2+ 26. Kf1 Bc4+ 27. Nxc4 Qf3+ etc.) 25. Ne4 Rfxe4 26. Kh1 (if 26. Qxc6 Bxc6 27. Rd6 Re6 wins) Rh4 27. Qxh4 Rxg2! 28. Ra3 Rxg5+ White resigns.

Ten years is a long time to wait to unveil an improvement, but it finally got Radulov a W. :)
