  naresb: White was good with 9. c5, 10. Bb5, 11. BxNc6 followed by 18. f4 and 20. f5.

Blacks 22... Ne5 appeared to be a blunder as that exchanged two White's pawns with a Black Knight. But that also offered 'c' and 'f' file control to Black, which he failed to capitalize on.

Whether 29... g6 could have offered more opportunity for Black to defend?

Jun-28-14  celtrusco: <naresb:...Whether 29... g6 could have offered more opportunity for Black to defend?> Not really, because 30-Nf6+ captures the black Queen.
Jun-28-14  Ratt Boy: White's 39th is a devastatingly simple, quiet move.
Jun-28-14  siggemannen: Perhaps 20... Bxf5 was better, at least exchanging one more piece?

Jun-28-14  Fabrizio Vanzan: 28Nh6 is also crushing
Jun-28-14  vajeer: White's intentions of b5, f5 and Nxd5 were clear after 18. f4. Perhaps 18....Nf6 would have been better?
