  whiteshark: <<24.Nxb7??> scrubs the game.> is probably to hard because white doesn't lose the game by force. He missed a strong move and gets an slightly inferior position.

  whiteshark: But <29.Be3??> blows it.

After <29.f3!> White could have reduced some pressure through exchanging <29...Rxf3 30.Rxf3 Nxf3+ 31.Kf1 >
