Dec-11-18  Straclonoor: Why not 23....Qxd4 ?
24.Bxe6 Qxe3 25.Bxf7+ Kxf7 26.fxe3 dxc4 27.bxc4 goes to won knight ending for black, according to Stockfisch analysis. Other ways more worse for white.
Dec-11-18  Autoreparaturwerkbau: <23...Qxd4?> would be an error since <24.Qxd4 <not Bxe6> Nxd4 25.Bxd7> would lose a knight.
Jan-29-19  Straclonoor: <would be an error since> Of course!
My mistake. I meant 22....Qxd4
