Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-17-07  who: This is a fun game to look at with a computer. My Fritz thinks almost every move after white's 22nd was a gross blunder.
Jun-22-08  chocobonbon: <who> Were the blunders on both sides or only on White's side? How would Fritz have replied to 25.♖b4?
Feb-09-18  Straclonoor: <How would Fritz have replied to 25.♖b4?> I don't know how would Fritz replied but Stockfish gives total advantage for black after 24 moves Analysis by Stockfish 080218 64 POPCNT:

Yes, that works, but given that 25...Bc3+ is crying out to be played, it's hard to comprehend what the original poster could have had in mind.
