27...Nf3! and

  OBIT: Checking "Larsen's Selected Games," Black's 21st move was 21...Rexe4. That should fix the game score.
Jan-08-11  ForeverYoung: This is a rather brilliant game by the Great Dane. Thematic is the sacrifice 11 ... Nf4 12 Nxf4 exf4 13 Bxf4 Ne5!with compensation for the pawn. The tactical demolition of the white position is an exemplinary example of Larsen at his best!
