Bd6 10.Nc4 Nxc4 11.Bxc4 Bxh2+!? {(JW) This is still good for black. But a simple move like castles leaves black with a solid advantage. It seemed too intruiging to skip though.} 12.Kxh2 Ng4+ 13.Kg1 Qc7! 14.g3 Nxe3 15.fxe3 Qxg3+ 16.Kh1 Qh4+ {(JW) I'd had a long think here as black has a lot of interesting ideas. probably after something simple like castles black would be the preferable side even though my engine seems to think almost every continuation from here is a draw, not even because of perpetual. I chose this because I decided to win the exchange} 17.Kg1 Bh3 18.Bxf7+ Ke7 19.Qe2 Bxf1 {(JW) had white played Qd2/c2 I'd have had to check on g5 before taking the rook} 20.Rxf1 Qg3+ 21.Kh1 Qh3+ 22.Kg1 Rhf8 23.Nf5+ Kxf7 24.Qc4+ Kg6 25.Qe6+ Kg5 26.Qe7+ Rf6 27.Rf2!? {(JW) during play I thought this was brilliant as its the one move I hadnt seen. Though it turns out that it objectivly allows black a win with 27...Raf8!} Kg4?? 28.Qxe4+ Kh5 {(JW) Kg5 is still pretty reasonable} 29.Nxg7+ Kh6 30.Rxf6+ Kxg7 31.Qe7+ Kg8 32.Rf2!! {(JW) The only winning move. any other move and the game is still even.} {#r} 1-0
