  Honza Cervenka: 22.Nf3 would have been much better. For example, if 22...Qf4, then 23.Rxd6+! Qxd6 24.Qxg4+ Kf6 25.Qh4+ Kf7 26.Ne5+ Kf8 (26...Kg8 27.Qc4+ with mate; 26...Ke8 27.Nc4+ ) 27.Qf4+ Qf6 28.Nd7+ and white wins.
Jul-07-04  Cyphelium: <Honza> On 22. Nf3 Qh5 instead, an amusing variation is 23. Re6+ Nf6 24. Nh4+ Kh6 25. Rd5 Qf7 26. Qc1+. Every piece takes part!

  Honza Cervenka: <Cyphelium> You are right. Of course, instead of 25...Qf7 black can play 25...Qxd5 which avoids immediate mate but black position is hopeless.

Black can try also 22.Nf3 Bxh2+ 23.Kf1 Rhf8 (23...Qf4 24.Rd4 looks sufficient; now white cannot take the Queen for Rxf2#), but 24.Re6+ Kh5 25.Nxg5 Rxf2+ 26.Ke1 should be okay for white, for example, 26...Kxg5 27.Rd5+ Kh4 28.Qd3 threatening 29.Qh3# and 29.Qxh7+ or 26...Bg3 27.Ne4! (discovered check is not dangerous now as white can take the bishop with check) or 26...Rxg2 27.Nf3 Bg3+ 28.Kf1 Rf2+ 29.Kg1 Rxf3 30.Qd5+ Ne5 31.Rxe5+
