  PhilFeeley: A simple tactic wins the game, although white was in a desperate way already, being an exchange down. It's surprising he didn't see how bad 26. Nh5 was.
Jun-26-13  Steele Rodd: I don't understand why he gave up the exchange in the first place, it wasn't forced and there was never any compensation, was there?
Jun-26-13  Nerwal: The move 15. ♘e2 has to be explained. Probably white missed 15... a5 and was hoping to trap the queen somehow. But the bad position of the black queen is just one aspect of white's compensation and it's dangerous to play one move based on one factor and forget the others (here, white's bishop pair and lead in development, giving white attacking prospects); if 15. ♘e2 doesn't work tactically then white has just worsened his position with this move. I still think white has some compensation after 15. 0-0, although the position is easier to play as black (15... ♘f6, 15... ♕c3 or 15... ♔h8).

After that it's basically the customary coffeehouse party in a bad position. Maybe white should take the queen with 19. ♖a1 although black is still much better there.
