Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-21-13  redwhitechess: looks like the opening was quite a success for black, but the middle game was intrique.

33...Bxe4? , then white repay with 36.Rc3?? missing mate in two 36.Qxh4+ which is very easy, imo...

Oct-22-13  RookFile: Interesting game!
Oct-22-13  Everyone: How now?
Jan-15-20  Straclonoor: <looks like the opening was quite a success for black, but the middle game was intrique.> Yes. But it's not intrigue, it's clown's game.
<33...Bxe4? ,> Of course!
