  fredthebear: If 16...NxBf4?? 17.Qxh7+ Kf8 18.Qh8#.

20...Bxg4 snares two important kingside pawns, but White is up to the task of defending the position. This leaves Black down a piece but with pressure.

Capturing with the g-pawn instead of a heavy piece after 27.BxNf5 gxBf5 is not a blunder, but it does not look best to FTB. Black does eventually form a battery on the f-file, but White has re-arranged his pieces by then.

In the final position, Black has the outside passer, but the Black rook is absolutely pinned and requires piece protection. Various White queen and knight checks and forks loom. White's king is safer than Black's king, giving White an advantage in time.
