GM JOEL BENJAMIN GAME OF THE WEEK @ ICC -> https://webcast.chessclub.com/icc/i...

Dec-28-12  rilkefan: Playing over this game I wondered where black, who seemed to be making entirely sensible moves, went so wrong.

So fwiw stockfish thinks 14...Nb4 is equal, looking to 15.Qe4 Nc6. It thinks the more active 15...Qd5 (16.Re5 Qc6) was still about equal and certainly better than ...Bf6, which turns out to be a waste of a tempo or more. 17...Bxg5 was an improvement. And 24...Qf5 was necessary.
