  An Englishman: Good Evening: In a game full of surprises as early as move 5, White's 15th move is an impressive jolt, and would be a very hard puzzle to solve on the weekend.
Dec-02-07  znprdx: I don't get it ...seems like an unforced error when Black gives up the queen. Wasn't 20...d6 playable?
Dec-02-07  MrMelad: Black is lost after 20...d6, white plays 21.Nf6+ Bxf6(Only move) 22.Qxf6 and black can't stop the mate threat on e7.

Black's 20th move (20...Rg8) set up a plot to stop Qxf6, because now after 21.Qxf6 22.Rxg2+ 23.Kxg2 (23.Kh8 Rxh2) 23...Qg6+ - and white must exchange queens and lose the mate threat. But as you can see, it didn't quite work out...

  Honza Cervenka: Crazy game. Instead of 16...Rf8 it was better to play 16...Nh3+ 17.gxh3 (17.Kf1 Rf8 ) 17...Qg6+ 18.Qxg6 hxg6 19.Bxd4 Rxh3 etc. Also 16...Qxd2 17.Qxh8+ Ke7 18.e6 Nxe6 19.Bxd4 Qh6 20.g3 d6 looks like a bit lesser evil.

I wondered, why not 29...Ng5, threatening the queen and the h3 pawn?

Then I realized that white wins with 30.Re8+ Bd8 31.Bxg5, since the queen is untouchable because of Rxd8 mate. Hence, black plays 29...b6, to create an escape for the king. Then white defends against the now real threat with 30.Qf3.
