  Mateo: "Black must keep his Queen on d7; if he plays 9... Qd5 10. Kg1 e5 11. Qa4 Qd7 12. Nb5 White has a won game." (Golombek) I do not see a won game after 12... Nc6. And black could play 11... Nbd7.

  Mateo: With [20... Nc5] Black compels White to isolate his second pair of pawns since, apart from the mild threat of 21... Ne4, he has the much more violent 21... Ra8." (Golombek)

Black compels nothing as white could have played 21. Rd1 Kc6 22. Rc1 Kd6 23. Rd1 =.

  Mateo: Somewhat better than 27. Nf3 is 27. Rb7. After 27... Rd2 28. Kg1 Rd1 29. Kg2 Rb1! 30. Rb6 Nd6 31. Nf3 h6, with advantage for black, but with more chances for white to fight for a draw, than after 27. Nf3? which gives black a simple win.
