With the wisdom of hindsight Levitsky should have exchanged some pieces on d4 or on f3 in good time to reduce pressure.

  kingscrusher: No Gold coins for this game - as black seemed to play quite badly overall and 14. Qc5 was really a great punishing move.

  beatgiant: Black had laid a trap for 19. Nxf5?? <Nf3+> followed by 20...Qxh2#. But on 19. Bxf5, White avoids that with 19...Nf3+ 20. Nxf3, guarding h2.
