Oct-03-05  Raskolnikov: After 20.♔h2 Black to play and win.

20...♘g4+! White has to take, e.g. 21.♔h1 ♘f2+ 22.♔g2 ♘:d1 23.♕:d1 and Black has (at least) the possibility of ♗:h3 and ♖:a8.

After 21...♗:g4 White is a rook up, but Black has to many threats, e.g.♕h6-h3. If ♗ appears on c5 with check, White will probably be mated.

After 22...♖:a8 Black has two pawns for an exchange and a powerful attack on white squares. The threat is ♗f3 and ♕h6. White tries ♕e4, but Black deflects the white queen with ♖e8.

I'm pretty sure that he understood that there was no hope for him after that, Black would've had too much for the queen to go with his advantage in development. If the position isn't lost for White it's close with the main problem being that he'd have no play. Just a dream situation for any GM and it's why you often see them only muddying the waters when their position is bad. They usually like to keep things under control, I know from experience.
