  Honza Cervenka: 15.Bh6 was blunder as 15...Rf5 wins a piece. Black missed it but white gave him immediately another chance by 16.Be3?? Of course, white could have tried 17.Qxe6, which was apparently better than 17.fxe3?? but after 17...Qxe6 18.Bxe6 Rf6 19.Rc1 Raf8 black has great advantage too.

  wwall: After 15.Bh6?, Black's best may be 15...Rae8, threatening 16...Bg8.

Instead of 16.Be3?, perhaps best is 16.Bd2.

Instead of 19...Qd1+, White could have also played 19...Qd1+ 20.Kf2 Rf8+ 21.Kg3 h5, threatening 22...Qg4 mate.
