Oct-02-07  computer chess guy: 15 .. f5 is suspect: it allows White to open the center with f4 & e5. Fritz suggests 15 .. ♕a5 or 15 .. ♘ed7 instead.

  fredthebear: 29.Nd5 is a keen move! The knight is all but immune, as 29...cxNd5 30.Bxd5+ forming a bishop highway is all but fatal for the Black monarch and his knights.

  hought67: Instead of 27. Re8+? white had the immediate win with 27. Bd5+!, with checkmate on the next move.
