  whiteshark: Some analysis by Zoran Petronijevic :

"<14.g4?> [White comes to an inferior position.]

[Better was 14.Nxa7! with a slightly better position.]

<14...Nxf3+ 15.Qxf3 a6?> [Black missed a great tactical possibility: 15...Nxe4 16.Nxe4 f5 ∓]

<16.Nd4 e5?> [Black ruins his pawns in the centre.]

[Better was 16...d5 17.e5 Nd7 ∞]"
