  fredthebear: Shaky kingside assault.

Black's exchange sacrifice 23...RxNf5 appears insufficient, but it leaves Black with more pieces on the kingside. Pressure requires accurate responses.

25.Nd2?! Kg8?! allowed ...Bxg2 instead.

26.f3? would have been better off with g3 instead.

Again, 28.g3 would have allowed White to make a better stand by preventing 28...hxg2. Instead, Black makes three consecutive queen moves 28.Q, 29.Q, 30.Q that do not meet the defensive needs of the position. Black keeps coming and White keeps leaving.

The final position shown 30...Nh3+ is a forced mate in one on the long diagonal. Black's aggressive pawn and piece coordination pay off against misplayed defense.
