May-28-17  crwynn: 13...ab is an interesting knight sacrifice, though i doubt white can accept it. 14.b4 dc b4 and black should end up with 3 very good pawns for the knight.

  patzer2: Although 28. Qc5! was strong enough to force resignation, even stronger for White might have been 28. Nxf6+ Qxf6 29. Qe2 Nc7 30. Qg4 Qf5 31. Qh4 g5 32. Bxg5 (+4.80 @ 35 depth, Stockfish 8.)
