  tpstar: 12 ... Qd5 is superior to 12 ... Qc5 because it pressures f3; 13. Nxa7 Bg4! causes an immediate problem, which White solved by 14. Nc3 Qb7 15. Ne2. So White got 3 Pawns for the piece, but the QB and QR are spectators. Notice 21 ... Qa4! blockaded White's Pawns and hindered Bb2 (... Qc2), and I'm sure Black was planning ... Rad8 & ... Rd3. After 24 ... fg+ 25. Kxg2 Qc6+ 26. Kh2/Rf3 Re2+ wins.
