Nd5= 12. a4?! A pawn offer leading to great complications. An even game results from either 12. Bh3 Nxc4 13. b3 Nb6 14. Bxf5= 12. e4 fxe4 13. Qb3 Qc8 14. Bh3= 12... Qc8?! 12... Nxc4 is now correct and strong eg 13. Qd3 d5 14. Qxf5 (14. e4 fxe4 15. Nxe4 Nd6 and Black keeps the pawn.) 14... Ne4 15. Qg4 Nxc3 (15... Nxf2 was missed in the game and Black wins as follows 16.

Qe6 with enough play for White after either 18. Bxa7 (18. Rfa1 a6 19. Qb1) 18. Ra6 e4? 18... Rfc8 19. Nd5 Qxd3 20. Nxe7+ Kf7 21. exd3 Kxe7 22. Rfa1 19.
