  Honza Cervenka: 21.Bxc3 leaves white in inextricable troubles after simple and inconspicuous but deadly 21...Rab8. Also 22.Bxf6 Bxf6 23.b3 doesn't help for 23...a4 24.b4 Rb5 25.Re2 (preventing threat Rxd5) 25...Qb6 26.Re4 Rbc5 27.Ne3 Rc3 28.Qe2 a3 <[threatening - for example after neutral move like 29.g3 - 29...Bd4 30.Rexd4 Qxd4 31.Rxd4 Rc1# or 30.Nc2 Qc7 31.Rc1 (31.Rdxd4 Rxc2 ) 31...Rb3+! 32.axb3 Qc3 33.Nxd4 a2+ 34.Kxa2 Ra8+ 35.Kb1 Ra1#]> 29.Qd2 Bg5 30.f4 f5 31.Qd4 (31.Rd4 Bf6 ) 31...Qb5 32.fxg5 fxe4 33.Ng4 (with last hope 34.Nh6+) 33...Qd3+! (RxQ is not possible for mate Rc1) and black wins.

21.Qxc3 was necessary though black would have been better there too.

Aug-27-09  niccolo: why did white choose to castle queenside? it seems like a bad move especially because of the open c-file.
Dec-28-13  superstoned: <niccolo>, white castling kingside would be like trying to combine the Yugoslav and the classical dragon like Bronstein did in this game: Bronstein vs W Winter, 1946
