  OhioChessFan: Dom had to have seen the claustrophobia inducing 20. Qd5 long before it was playe2.
Jul-28-19  Steve.Patzer: Stockfish likes 37. h4 better.
Jul-28-19  Ratt Boy: Seems Black could've held it together with a R move, instead of 32gxf4?? My coach and analysis partner* says it's equal after 32♖e2 or ♖e3.



* Stockfish

Jul-28-19  goodevans: <25.Ne4> looks innocent enough but it was a mistake that handed back pretty much all of the advantage white had accumulated. The clever <25...Neg5> leads to a virtually forced sequence that culminates in black winning 2Rs+P for his Q.

Having fought his way back into the game, black then completely misses that his R is en prise!
