  whiteshark: <JointheArmy>: Yelena has such strong tactical skills, she wouldn't have missed 14. Nf5.

I guess she couldn't find a good continuation after 14. exf5 15.exf5 Nxb3+ 16. axb3 <d5!>

a) 17. Bxg7 Nxg7 18. Rxe7 Bxf5 19. Nxd5 f6 Nxf6 20. Bd6 Nxd5 21. Bxf8 Kxf8 22.Qd6+ Be7 23. Qxd5 Qxd5 24. Rxd5 Be6

b1) 17. Bf4 Bd8 18. Nxd5 Qb7 or
b2) 17. Bf4 Bf6 18. Nxd5 Qc6

c) 17. Bd2 (no) Qd8 18. Nxd5 Qxd5 19. Rxe7 Qxf5

My conclusion: <14. Nf5?>
