Not bad!

Apr-18-14  qqdos: This game has been chose as the best game of Chess Informator Volume 118, so perhaps <rollicking> is well-deserved.
Apr-18-14  Rookiepawn: I'm just trying to figure out whether the Q sac gives Black a chance of getting away with it.

At first glance I would say 22... g5 strikes me as a little bit too bold. Pushing all your castle's pawns forwards when the enemy's Bishops pair is aiming at it always seems a risky move. I think Black overestimates attacking chances on the King's side, opening diagonals and files when he should be blocking them and try to steer the game to the final.
