May-11-17  Moszkowski012273: 26...RxN!!!

Works in every line!

May-11-17  ChessHigherCat: What a fantastic game, I've never seen anything like it.

If 28. Qd3 Nf6+ 29. Qxf6 Rxf6 and black's a piece up.

If 27. Qc3 Nxe4 28. Qc7 Nxf2?
If 27. bxc3 Qxd3 28. Rxd3 Nxe4?

May-11-17  Moszkowski012273: No. If 28.Qd3,Nf3+ 29.Qxf3,Rxf3 and the material is dead equal but white is positionally busted.

If 27.Qxc3,Rc8 28.Qa3,Qxa3 29.pxa3,Nh3+ 30.Kh1,Bxg4!

If 27.bxc3,Bb5 28.c4,Bxc4 29.Qc3,Be2!

May-11-17  Moszkowski012273: Also.

27.Qxa6,Nh3+ giving up the Rook on c3 is a bit stronger than what was played because of ...Bxg4!

Jesse put this game up on Facebook the other day... I for one appreciate the humility.

May-12-17  ChessHigherCat: Thanks for the solutions and sorry about the mistakes in the ^&%^notation, this is what I meant (as you guessed):

If 28. Qd3 Nf3+ 29. Qxf3 Rxf3 and black's a piece up.

If 27. Qc3 Nxe4 28. Qc7 Nxf2?
If 27. bxc3 Qxd3 28. Rxd3 Nxe4?
