10. Qb3 White wants to directly refute Black's set-up.
Rg8 Black's pawn structure is damaged, but the semi-open g-file compensates him for this.
Better was 13.0-0-0!? Be6, with slight advantage for White.
14. Bxf7?? This over-optimistic move allows Black to seize the initiative. White had to play 14.Rd1 or 14.g3.
16. Nxf5 Nd3+! Perhaps here White expected only 16...Nxf7 17.Qc2, where he could count on his strong knight. But Black does not have to take the piece back:
Kb8! Now White is doomed as his king is in a horrible position.
19. Qe6? More stubborn would be 19.Ng3, although after 19...Qc6 20.e4 c4 21.Qb5 Qxb5 22. axb5 Bc5 Black wins. A very cute, though not compulsory, position arises after 19...Bh6 20.Qe6? Qxe6 21.Bxe6 Bxe3 22.Nf1 Rg8+ 23.Bxg8 Nf4 24.Nxe3 Nh3#.
