  Domdaniel: White's piece sac seems dubious. Though he eventually gets three pawns for the Knight, Black is always better and his King is safe.

Something odd happens at the end, however. I don't see how 28...Qxe6 makes sense (not even in blitz) and then the final couple of plies are just as baffling.

Incidentally, I've seen other games that follow this for quite a long way. A top board clash from the 2013 Irish championships (Fitzsimons-O'Connor, I think) kept pace to move 18 or so -- despite black's good score in earlier games.

  Gilmoy: Just a missing move pair? 28..Nxe6 29.dxe6 Qxe6 etc.
