Jul-10-11  Everett: Some nice touches herewise 15..Bxa3 liquidates some material while leaving Black with more space, and the sequence 26..Rc8 27.Qxb4 Qd1! threatening Rc1. Seirawan would have had to see the 29..Ne8 defense ahead of time.
Jul-10-11  harish22: the wining move was actually the waiting move 22. Bg6. It vacated the h7 square for the queen. Yaseer was baiting is opponent to overplay and probably saw ne8 at that point itself.
Jul-11-11  Everett: <harish22> I agree 22..Bg6 is smart move and part of the entire plan.
Jul-11-11  Blaise99a: my computer has a funny idea...instead of white taking 18. Bb4, it comes up with the funny idea of

18. Rxa5 Rxa5 19. Bxg7 Re8 and then with best play 20. Nf3 e5 21. Bxh6 Qd6 22. Bc1 d4 23. Ng5 Bg6 24. f4......with 'play on both sides' as they say......

Jul-12-11  Everett: Interesting, thank you!
