  plang: Dreev thought Black's setup with 4..Nc6 and 5..b6 was a bit "careless" and tried to take advantage with 6 Ne4!?. Had Black played 23..Ne8 White had an interesting tactical option: 24 Nxc5!?..bxc 25 Be4..Nc7 (25..Qxc4+ 26 Kg1) 26 Qxd6. White could have answered 26..fxg with either 27 Qxh6 or 27 Re3..Qxf2+ 28 Nxf2..Rxf2+ 29 Qxf2..gxf 30 Rg3+. Black's decision to give up his queen with 27..Qxf4 did not save the game; his best chance would have been 27..Qxh5 hoping for 28 Nf6+..Rxf6 29 Rxf6..Qh1+ 30 Ke2..Re8+ 31 Kd1..Ba4+ when Black is winning though White would have been winning after 28 Rh4!..Bh3+ 29 Kg1..Qf3 30 Rxh3..dxe 31 Rxh6.
