  Mateo: A strange game. I guess both players were in deep zeitnot.

15... Qg5? 16. Nc7! Qxg2 <16...Rb8? 17.Nd5 > 17. Bxe4 dxe4 18. O-O-O! Bg4 <18...Rb8? 19.Rhg1 >

19. Rhg1? <19.Na8 Bd1 20.Rd1 , as 20...Ra8? does not work because of 21.Qd8> Qxh2 20. Nxa8 h5 21. Rh1 <21.Qa7 Rc8 22.Kb1 Bd1 23.Rd1 Qf2 24.Nc7 Qe2 25.Rc1 Qd3 26.Ka1 Qd2 27.Qc5 is unclear, Black has only two pawns for the Knight but the Knight is pinned and the White's heavy pieces cannot move too much>

19...Rc8+ 22. Kb1 Qxf2 23. Nc7! Bxd1 24. Rxd1 Qe2

25. Rg1!? <25.Rd2 Qf1 26.Rd1 Qe2=>

25...g6 26. a4 Kh7?! <Now Black threatens to take the Knight, but 26...Qd3 27.Qd3 ed looks better for Black, as his strength is in his kingside pawns. Without the Queens, these pawns would be more dangerous, as Black would not need them to protect the King>

27. Nb5? <This is a blunder. He should have played 27.Nd5. If 27...Qc2 28.Ka1 Rc4 29.Nf6=.>

27...Qc2+ 28. Ka2 Rc4 29. Qd5 Rxa4+ 30. Na3 Qf2 31. Rc1 Kg7 32. Rc8 Qf6 33. Qxb7?? a5?? <33...Ra3 , end of the game> 34. Qc7?? Rb4?? <34...Ra3 > 35. Nc4 Qe6? <giving White the advantage> 36. Qd8! Kh6 <36...Rc4?? 37.Qh8 mate> 37. Qh8+ Kg5 38. Rc5+ f5 39. Qd8+ Kh6?? 40. Qc7? <40.Nd6 with a deadly attack > h4

41. Kb1 Qg8 42. Qf4+ Kh5 43. Ne5 a4? <losing again> 44. Nxg6! Rxb2+ 45. Kc1 Rb1+ 46. Kxb1 Qb3+ 47. Kc1 <or 47.Kb2> Qa3+ 48. Kd1 Qxc5 49. Nxh4
