An immediate 23 Ng5 was better. (If 23...Qxf6; 24 Nh7+ wins the Q)
Never mind though. The best GM wins are rarely flawless
An interesting game.
then 24 fg fg ( 24.....Be4 is well answered by 25 gf)
25 Nhg5 is still interesting as unravelling isn't easy for black
later on in the game black's b5 is an instructive error as it helps white create another passed pawn. I can't make up my mind if an immediate Kc7 would result in a tenable ending for black: what is anyone else's thoughts on this?
