    I won a piece, but lost the game. Any plans for drawing or winning this game?

    20. ... Nxa2! 21. Kxa2 bxa6

    or

    20. ... Nxa2! 21. axb7 Rb8 22. a4 Kf8! and white king can't move Kf3, so your king should arrive c7 first. I would certainly try this or immediately 20. ... bxa6 21. Kxf3 which leaves black a pawn up.

    EDIT: 20. ... Nxa2! 21. axb7 Rb8 22. Rb1 Kf8!

    But 27. Rb5 complicates?

    May I suggest 26...Nd2+ as an improvement?

    23...e5! and the hell did you think not to play Nd2+ as suggested?! Probably you didn't see this plus because a5, Nxb1, a6 - white is winning.

    Still incredible game!
