  fredthebear: This game was even for 22 moves, and then the White pawn shield dissolves.

Acceptance of the Greek Gift 23...Bxh2+ 24.KxBh2 is met by the common tactic queen check and fork of an LPDO 24...Qd6+ and 25...QxBb6 gaining the piece back.

24...Ne4! looks rather bold. Acceptance would be fatal, as 25.fxNe4 fxe4+ with a discovered attack 26...exQd3.

Black has a choice of captures in the final position.
