Aug-14-19  DrGridlock: Love watching Aronian play chess, and has some innovative chess ideas, but 18 ... Kg7 was not Aronian's best idea.

What's that bishop doing on a7 anyways?

After:

18 ... Bxf2
19 Kxf2 Nxe4+
20 Rxe4 Qxg5

Black's may safely play-on with the upper hand.

26 ... Nh7 is the game's disaster move. Black's king is a little "loose" but White has only 1 piece - his queen - on the kingside. 26 ... Nd5 is rather effective at preventing black's rook from sacheing on over to the kingside (via b4), and once it arrives there on move 28 (that didn't take long), the game is lost for black.
