  Chessical: <26...Qxd3!> 27.Rxd3 cxd3 28.f3 d2 is an alternative and amusing finish.

  Gypsy: <14...f5?!> The redeaming feature of this move is that it does not turn quite as bad as it looks. But White now goes up a pawn.

<19...Bf6!?> Duras is beginnig to fight back from the hole.

<20.Qd5?!> An energetic move. But right here White loses his advantage. After the pedestrian 20.Bxf6 Nxf6 21.Rd2 Ne4 22.Rc2 Rd8, it is not clear if Black has enough activity for being a pawn down.

<22...Qd2> Black now threatens Nc3 and Nxf2; eg, 23.Qc4 Nxf2 24.Nxc4 Qxe3 ...

<25...c4!> The game is decided; 26.Rxd2 cxb3 27.Rd1 bxa2(or Nc5) nets also the knight Nd3.

<26...Qe2> This move is calculated for 27.Re1 cxd3 28.Rxe2 dxc3. <Chessical>'s finnish 26...Qxd3 is no less resolute or devastating.

<29...c3> White knight is as helpless as they come. Since 30.Nxc3 Nxc3 is his best play, White resigned.
