Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-24-10  birthtimes: Lancaster should have played 26. Ra1 followed by 27. Ra7, but with 26. Nd4 he allowed Basman to take control of the a-file, and after Lancaster then failed to play 27. Nc6, Basman penetrated queenside, and since Lancaster did not see his last opportunity to draw the game with 34. Qxg4! he soon lost.

Also note...
If 18. Bxh5 then 18...b5!
