  plang: 14..Rad8 was suggested as more solid as was, a move later, 15..dxe. After 16 f5!..Bxf3? Black was already in deep trouble; better was 16..exf 17 Nd5..Bxd5 18 Bxd5..Rd8 19 e6..fxe 20 Bxe6+..Kh8 21 Bxf5..Bf6 although White would still have had a clear edge. 18 Qh3? was too slow; 18 f6 would have been decisive. After 18..Qc6? Black was once again lost; necessary was 18..Bc5 19 fxe..Bxd4+ 19 Rxd4..Qxe5 20 Rxd5..Qxe6 and Black will likely hold.
