  bright1: Very amusing finish. I think finding the last move would be a good puzzle, probably Tuesday level.
Nov-21-12  YoungEd: 16. 0-0 has to be the clunker here, right?
Nov-22-12  Shams: <YoungEd> In my opinion White's first clunker was on move three. <3.Nf3> is by far the best move in the position. Black is at least equal and actually I think slightly better after both i) 3.d5 and ii) 3.dxe5 dxe5 4.Qxd8 Kxd8 when Black will within a few moves play ...c7-c6 and ...Kc7 with a problem-free game.

By move 16 White's position already looks very shaky to me. If kingside castling is out, 16.Bd2 Ng4 looks even worse.
