Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-16-05  Ulhumbrus: One alternative to 20...Bxc3 (conceding the bishop pair) is the plan of ...g5 and ..g4 attacking the f3 pawn defending the e4 pawn obstructing Black's QB on the long diagonal. This suggests 20...h6 supporting ..g5 when ...Ne5 with ...g5 may follow, or else 20...Ne5 with ..h6, ...g5 and ...g4 to follow.
Aug-24-17  Retireborn: NiC 2005/6 points out that White could have saved the game with a queen sacrifice: 31.Rf1 Qd2 32.Bf4 Qb2 33.Qxg7+! Kxg7 34.Be5+ Kg6 (not 34...Kg8 35.Bc4+) 35.Rf6+ Kg5 36.Rf5+ Kg4 37.Rf4+ perpetual; the king cannot go to h3 because of 38.Bf1+.
