    Didn't Blak have check-mate already in 29th move:
    29. ...Bg6+
    30. Nxg6 fxg6 checkmate??
    Or I missed something?

    Edit-- Okay, I did miss something: white King can now capture Pg4, since Be6 doesn't control the field g4 any more.
    Typical oversight, all right - to forget changes on the board during calculation-in-head.

    I couldn't resist, though, to check the game on chessbomb.com with their computer analysis.

    "My" 29....Bg6 was still 4th best solution with 4.08 advantage!


    29. ...Bg6+ 30. Nxg6 fxg6+ 31. Kxg4 Nxf2+ 32. Kf3 Rb8 33. Qxb8 Nxb8 34. Rh2 Kxh6 35. g3 Ne4 36. Rg2 Rd1 37. Be2 Nd2+ 38. Kf2 Rc1 39. Rg1 Ne4+ 40. Kg2 Rc3

    A fascinating game. Is it really just about white bringing his Queen out and never getting castled? Nunn's openings only gives 7. cxd4 for example. Later, when Black gives up his Queen and two pawns for a Rook knight and two pawns it seems to be about better piece activity and control of kingside squares and yet his light squared bishop is not developed until move 27.

    One of the most intricate and prolonged king hunts I've ever seen.

    Just ridiculous how he's able to throw everything at him,
    saccing the Queen so early on move 15.

    I wonder how an engine would rate this and find viable defense for white?

    The move I liked most was ...g5. That said, "I am coming for you with everything I've got, even weakening my own King position because I know I'll get you first."
