  plang: The Closed Sicilian has scored remarkably poorly for White. 11 dxe?..Nxe5 12 fxe..Nxe4 would have favored Black. 12 Bc3 perhaps would have been an improvement. 16 Re1? was the decisive error; better was 16 Nxe4..Nxe4 17 dxe..Rxa4 with approximate equality. 18 Bxc6..d2 19 Bxd2..Rxd2 20 Re2..Qd4+ 21 Kh1..Rd8 would have been good for Black. 19 Kxg2..cxd 20 Nd1..Qd5+ 21 Kg1..Rc8 would have been winning for Black.
