  Troller: Apparently 21.Bh6 was the decisive mistake in an already suspicious position. Black played the ensuing tactics nicely, and White could have resigned with a clear conscience after 25..Nf5.

  Troller: I think 18.Bb7 Na5 followed by exchanges. Black is still better IMO, but it may have been an improvement for White over the game, though.
