  tpstar: I'll bet Black expected an easy win after White gave up the Queen for two Bishops with 15. Qxd3!? (maybe 15. Qxd3!!) Qxd3 16. Nxc5, except 16 ... Qf5 17. Ba3 is already a mate threat (18. Nd7#). White's Rook offers 18. Re5! and 19. Rg5! are funny, but Black would have lasted longer playing out the BB vs RP endgame. Then the Black King is alone and helpless at the end.
