Apr-06-12  zluria: 25. h3 is a hilarious move. The g6 Bishop is hanging, as is the Black Queen, but instead of taking them White moves h3 :D
Apr-06-12  disasternow: Why not 28-,Re1# ?
Is the notation ok?

Actually Re1# is possible in move 27.

  Sastre: The scorecard is incorrect. White played 25.g3 instead of 25.h3:

Jun-14-15  estrick: On move 27, White should have grabbed the pawn on f6, which would have maintained his advantage of +1.84, according to Fritz.

27. Rd3? gets a 0.00 evaluation from the chess engine.

But Black's response, 27. ...Kf8?? was disastrous.

If 27 ...c5 (threatening to a fork on c4), 28. Qxh6 Re1+, 29. Kg2 c4, 30. Rd4 Qc6+, 31. Kh3 Ne6, 32. Rxc4 Ng5+, 33. Kh4 Nf3+, 34. Kh3 Ng5+, 35. Kh3 and it's a draw
