Jun-03-05  azaris: Whither Kramnik of yesteryear? 25...Bxf3 26. gxf3 Qh6 27. Qg1+ Kf8 was clearly better for Black according to GM Marovic.

May-05-20  oscar86: Why not 28..... Bg3 and wins? If 29. Qg1 then 29.... Bf3+. 30. Qg2 Qh2#. If 29. B×e4 Qh2#.. If 29.Qe2 Bf3+ 30. Qf3 Qh2#.
Now 28..... Bg3 29. Kg1 Qh2+ 30. Kf1 Qh1+ 31. Ke2 B×f3+ and wins the rook and queen....
May-05-20  Marko58: Oscar, if 28...Bxg3 then 29. Ra2 and I think black loses the initiative.
