  Wild Bill: This has got be a tough loss for Negi. He's going to see <27...Bxe4?> in his nightmares for a long time.

Indeed, 27...Bxe4 was the losing blunder, just missing Rxd4. But already 26...Bc6 looks inaccurate, 26...Nf6 might be better immediately threatening g4 and preventing Nf3 and thereby maintaining the Black Queen's central position later.

13th Dubai Op UAE (9.1), 18.04.2011

28.xd4! cxd4?! (28...xd4 29.xd4
xc2 30.xc2. or 28...xd4 29.xe5
xc2 30.xc2 and White should be
objectively winning in both cases.)
29.xc8! d5 30.c7! d7
31.e5 (31.e5 xf3 32.xf6 xg2
33.c8+ h7 34.h8#) 10.

Very tough loss for Negi, who only needed a draw, and cracked under the pressure according to Gupta.
