  wwall: 23.Nxd5 doesn't seem to work. Perhaps 23.h4 is better.

After 34.Qb4? (perhaps 34.Qe1), Black wins after 34...Bxg3! 35.Bxg3 Qe2+ 36.Bf2 Nf4+ 37.Kg3 Nd3, threatening 38...Qxf2+ and 38...Nxb4. If 38.Qxb7??, then 38...Qxf2+ 39.Kg4 Qg2+ 40.Kh4 g5+ 41.Kh5 Nf4 mate.

39.Qd2? fails to 39...Nxg3. Better may be 39.Qe8, and of 39...Nxg3, then 40.Qxf7+ Kh8 41.Qe8+ Kg7 42.Qe5+ Qxe5 43.dxe5 Ne2, but Black still looks OK.
