  bright1: Did black have to capture the bishop on move 26? Instead 26. ... Rf5-f7 27. Rxf7 Kxf7 28. Qxh7 Rg8 isn't great but at least it doesn't lose outright

  jith1207: I'm guessing moving queen back to c6 in 23rd black move would have given space to protect its pieces, and also give hard time to White's rook out there while preventing any advancement of c pawn. Not sure if black could have salvaged the game after the queen coming to its rest place in the game text.

  Breunor: Jrth120u,

Soltis has this game in his column today and agrees with you, Black is ok after Qc6. Stockfish likewise agrees.

I really like Bf4!

Bright1, after 26 ...Rf5-Rf7 leads to mate in 6 (according to Stockfish). After 27 Rxf7 Kxf7, not 28 Qxh7; white plays 28 Qd7 ch and then the Bishop on g7 falls.
