  Peligroso Patzer: Kosteniuk's exchange sacrifice (<16. ... Rxc4>) was strong, but she went astray with <18. ... 0-0?!>. (Better is <18. ... Nxe5 19. Bb3 Nd7 >.)

Surprisingly (surprising because an inaccurate move with the LSB leads directly to a position with fatal dark-square weaknesses), the losing mistake (according to Fritz) was <21. ... Bc8?>; with <21. ... Qb6> the Black position would possibly have been defensible.

  Peligroso Patzer: <A historical note>: Black's plan with <13. ... g6> (to block the light-square diagonal and prepare <... Bg7>) has been the main theoretical continuation since Portisch vs Larsen, 1968.
