  Chessdreamer: Nice game by PotD!
Nov-03-07  ToTheDeath: Fantastic attack. It looks speculative but it all works out in computer analysis. This game is annoted in Glenn Flear's book Grandmaster Chess.

20... Kd7 is the losing move. With 20... Qg5 Black can stay in the game.

Nunn in "101 Brilliant Chess Miniatures":
(I'm giving the most interesting winning variant under 2)) <20....Qg5! was the only hope. Then White can maintain the advantage, but accurate play is necessary: 21.Qxd5 Nxg5 22.Rf8+ Kd7 23.Nb6+ and now:
[1) ...)]
2)23....Ke6! 24.Nh4! (not an easy move to find; 24.Nxa8 Rxg6 25.Rxc8 Nf3+ 26.Kh1 Nxd2 is unclear) 24....Rb8 25.Nf5 Rg6 26.Re8+ Kf6 27.Nxd6 Nf3+ 28.Kf2 Nxh2 29.Ndxc8 with a clear advantage for white.>
