  Honza Cervenka: Wild line 7...Bxd4!? 8.Qxd4 Bxf3 9.exd6 0-0 10.gxf3 Qh4+ 11.Ke2 Ng3+ 12.Kd3 Qxd4+ 13.Kxd4 Nc6+ 14.Kc3 Nxh1 seems to be a little bit unclear.

15...h6 was not good and black should have played 15...f4 instead of that. Then white's position would not have been easy as 16.Bc1? Bxf3! 17.Rxf3 Ng5 18.Rff1 Rxe1 19.Rxe1 f3! is clearly advantageous for black. I don't see there anything better for him than draw after 16.Bxe4 Rxe4 17.Ng5 (17.Bd2 Rxe1 18.Nxe1 Be6 ) 17...Rxe3 18.Rxe3 fxe3 19.Rxf8+ Qxf8 20.Nf7+ Kg8 21.Nh6+ etc.

16...Rf6 was a mistake allowing 17.Ne5! as 17...Nxe5 18.dxe5 Rxe5 19.Bd4 wins material for white. Of course, text continuation 17...Bh5 followed by pretty 18.g4! was not much better for black.
