Feb-06-09  YoungEd: I think that 19. ♗c5 was the real lemon here. White passes up the chance to regain the lost pawn, and after the ♗ exchange he cedes the b-file to Black in addition to having weak doubled c-pawns. Pretty easy win for Black after that.

  wwall: It looks like the losing move was 11.Nh4. Instead of 11...Be7, Black could have also played 11...Bxd3 12.Qxd3 c4_ 13,Be3 Qd8 14,Qc2 Qxh4 15.g5 Nf5.

After 11.Nh4 Be7 12.g5, Black still had 12...Bxd3!
