  Sokrates: I guess 29.Ng5 would be devastating.

  jith1207: 28...Rg8 or Ng6 29. Nc5 earns the black queen and has enough pieces to activate and positional advantage to destroy all black pawns. 28...Qb6 29.Ng5 Rg7 30.Ne6 and gets both rooks on fork and black could delay by 30...Rg6 forcing white queen down the h-file. In the end, white has strong defense and king is in a fort while black king is hiding behind a pawn and a supporting cast of minor pieces. I think Black did not want to continue more.
Aug-25-16  SimplicityRichard: I wonder why Donchenko allowed 15.Bxf6. This was the beginning of the plan to invade the Black King. It seems so simple to me as far apart as my level is from a 2600. I may be missing something. Comments invited.#
