Candidate move

5/9/2011 – In this difficult position the second player Gata Kamsy went for 30...N8e7, whereupon he had to continue suffering and could save the game only by a miracle. How would be your assessment of the alternative 30...Nxd4 31.Bxd4 Bxa2 with a discovered attack on the the white bishop d4? A) good enough for equality; B) still worse for Black, but better than the game anyway; C) a direct way to disaster, White wins immediately. The solution is here, but first ponder over it with a larger version of the diagram.
