Sep-05-16  zanzibar: Black could have played ...d5 a little earlier and gotten out of the opening a bit better, but the critical position in the game comes at Black's move 25:

(After 24...Qe2-e3 25.Kc1-b1)

3rrbk1 /1p3p2/2p1qn1p/p1n1p1p1/4P2P/2P2QB1/PPB2PPN/1K1R3R b - - 0 25

Instead of 25...b5, Black should sidestep White's h-pawn with 25...g4 (or 25...Rxd1, 26...g4) and prevent the K-side attack.

As it is, White then obtains the open h-file and makes a series of nice and precise moves to finish.
