May-24-16  Delboy: Maybe one of the Winawer specialists would like to comment on where white went wrong. After 10. ... e5 white was practically on the ropes, as 11. Nxe5 Ne4 followed by Nxf2 or Rxf2 is strong for black. 13. ... e3 concluded the triumphant march of the e-pawn in devastating fashion, as recapturing the bishop on move 15 allows 15. ... Ne4 followed by Qh4+ and the invasion of f2
May-24-16  jsbachop1: While I'm no specialist, my humble (perhaps remedial) observation is that white had a failed opening, not identifying the gambit at 4. c5 and reacting properly. A declined gambit and then blocking the d file trying to defend the knight instead of focusing on center game.

  perfidious: Black's fifth move has long been known to be dubious; notwithstanding the result of this game, 5....cxd4 has not fared well and 5....Ne7 is far more common and considered stronger. An improvement may well be found in Jones vs S Surak, 1991.
