    I don't think that's fatal since ...Rxd5 can be met by Bc4. I would have tried to hold onto the H-pawn. Pawn down with bad bishop is not great.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Question: What is the correct form of brackets around comments for the viewer to wok? Please advise.

    Apologies that the last 60 moves are very boring!! At least i rescued a draw from a lost game 2 Pawns down. Of course in the final KNP vs KB ending, any advance of the pawn and I immediately capture it with a KN vs K draw. So Black could only try for an obvious tactical trick, which - given how tired I was - I could easily have fallen for!

    How a Q-side bind and central and light-square control can enable a fast switch to the K-side. The late Taimanov was a master of this. I missed a quicker win that Taimanov in his prime probably would not have.

    The exchange sac on move 24 was modelled after Alexey Sergeevich Selezniev vs Alexander Alekhine, Triberg r3, 9 July 1921. After running through the game with Stockfish after its conclusion, the exchange sac is not the most highly regarded continuation. All the same, it assesses Black with only the tiniest disadvantage if White jettisons his c-pawn to open some files to make use of his extra exchange, as in the notes. As it stands, White lost the more important a-pawn that gave Black two powerful passed pawns, then couldn't avoid giving the exchange back. At move 38, Stockfish's first choice is in the notes, but from a human perspective, all one needs to know is that two connected passed pawns on the sixth rank or further will beat a rook.
