<Is there a move that can save Black from losing from move 25 to 33?>

I don't see one. Not only that, Black has been in trouble since the early opening and it is hard to find a satisfactory plan as early as move 9! I would suggest 8...Ne7 to prepare for castling kingside. Castling queenside as in the game gives White a very dangerous attack.

  InspiredByMorphy: In reply to my last post, after looking at the positon again, there really isnt anything better. Black is toast.
Feb-27-09  Octal: Incidentally, Schwarz means "Black" in German. Well fitting!

I expect he was desperately hoping for 30...Qxe5
