  plang: 15 Qd3 was a new idea; 15 Qc2 and 15 Qd4 had been played previously. 24..Bc4 25 Qh3..Bxf1 26 Rxf1..Qe3! 27 Bxf5..Qxh3 28 Bxh3..hxg 29 Be6+..Kh7 30 f5..Rae8 would have led to an even endgame. Black got into trouble after 27..Nf5? 28 Bf6!; better would have been 27..Bf7 28 Qh3..Be6 wioth a repetition. As mentioned above, in time pressure, White missed 29 Rf3! which would have left him with a winning position. 33..Rf7 would have been better; after Pelletier's 33..Rfe8? White missed the chance to play 34 Bh4..Ne3 35 Re1..g5 36 Rxe3..gxh 37 Kxh4 with good winning chances.
