  tpstar: I wonder if the final move is a transcription error, as 24 ... Bxb2+ 25. Rxb2 Qxb2+! 26. Kxb2 Nc4+ & 27 ... Nxe3 is that much better.
Oct-24-07  Davolni: I was able to get the Nc4+ move. after couple of moves, with my almost 0 knowledge in this top level games i think it follows as

25.axb3,Ba3xb2. 26.Rxb2,Qxb2+. 27.Kxb2, Nc4+.....

I think this is what it is. I don't know. somebody else might be able to give better details.

How did this game take place?

Oct-24-07  Shams: black's up a piece; there's no forced mate but Qxb3 allows the queen trade (not to mention opening the gates of heaven to black's knight, in the form of the c4 square). Play might continue 1.axb3 Bxb2 2. Rxb2 ed 3. Qxd4 Qc1+ 4. Ka2 0-0 and white is quickly taken to the woodshed.
