  Chessical: In a drawish position, and perhaps lulled by this, Kashdan plays carelessly allowing Maroczy to invade his position with <25. Qb3?>.

Kashdan avoids grabbing the <c> pawn only to lose his Queen:

<26. Rxc6?> Rd1+ 27. Rxd1 Rxd1+ 28. Kg2 Qf1+ 29. Kf3 Rd3+

<32. Qe7?> turns an unpleasant position into a lost one as <g1-a7> diagonal is no longer sufficiently covered.

The end is: <33... Kh7> 34. Qf8 Rxf2 35. Qg8+ Kg6
