Kibitzer's Corner
May-23-20  Stanley Yee: 23. Nh6?? Lost the plot. Drop a knight into f6! Now 23. ... Nxh6 wins for Black. Optical illusion? The reply 23. ... gxh6?? was just as baffling. Probably a loading error.
Aug-14-21  Saniyat24: If 23...Nxh6 then white would have played 24.Bxh6, and then if black played 24...gxh6 the same thing would happen with 25.Nh6+ trapping the Queen, albeit a move later...!

  adamico: 23. Ngf6+ has to have been the move actually played. 23. gxf6 24 Nf6+ transposes to the game notation as currently written.
