  wwall: 15.Ng3?? is the losing move. Perhaps White should play 15.Nbc3 or 15.Qd2.

After 15...Nxg4!, if 16.Bxg7 (16.hxg4 Bxb2, winning the rook), then 16...Nxe3 17.Qe1 Nxf1 18.Bxf8 Nxg3 19.Qxg3 Kxf8 or 19...Qxf8 wins for Black. If 16.Qd2, then 16...Qh4 17.hxg4 Qxg3+ 18.Kh1 Qh3+ 19.Kg1 Qxg4+ 20.Kh2 Qh4+ 21.Kg2 Bd7,threatening 22...Bh3+ wins for Black.

  perfidious: Certainly White could have done without the weakening 13.g4 and gone for Nbc3 instead, after which he has a static but playable position.
