15.0-0-0 Rfc8
[>=15...Rac8 is more flexible as black can launch a rook to e8 later.]

16.Qf2?!
this hasty move is not accurate and gives away the advantage. [>=16.Kb1 black seems to have compensation all the time but it doesn't seem enough. 16...Ne5 (16...Bxd5? 17.Nxd6! ; 16...a5 17.Bb5+/= ) 17.Qf2 a5 18.Bb6 Qe7 19.g5+/= ]

16...Qa5?!
[16...a5!? white has no objects for attack]

17.Bd4?
after this move white gets into a very serious danger, [17.Nxd6! Bxd5 18.Rxd5 Qxd5 19.Nxc8 Rxc8 20.Kb1 Ne5 and the position is about equal]

17...Qxa2?
black's gives his present back for the last time in the game. [17...Ne5! 18.Kb1 (18.Nxd6 Bxd5 19.Nxc8 Rxc8-> black's attack seems very strong) 18...Bxd5 19.b3 Nxg4!-/+ ; 17...Bf8!? 18.g5 Qxa2 19.Bh3 b3 and black's compensation is enough 20.c3 Ne5 (20...Qa1+? 21.Kd2 Qxb2+ 22.Ke1+- ) 21.Nf6+ (21.Bxc8 Rxc8 22.Bxe5 dxe5 23.Kd2 Bc5 24.Nxc5 Qxb2+ 25.Ke3 Qxc3+ 26.Nd3 Qd4+ 27.Ke2 Qxd5~~ ) 21...Kh8 22.Bxc8 Nc4 23.Ng4+[] Kg8 (23...Bg7? 24.Bxg7+ Kxg7 25.Qd4++- ) 24.Nf6+= ]

[19...f6 doesn't matter much 20.Nxd6+/- ]

20.Nxd6
now white controls the very important square c8, a fact which immediately determines any possible black attack.

20...Rc7 21.Bc4
[21.Nxf7! Kxf7 22.Qf4++- wins but I was too lazy to look at this in this stage of the tournament when I was practically leading by a whole point so I chose a solid development move.]
