1.Nf3 Nf6 2.g3 d5 3.Bg2 g6 4.c4 d4 5.Qa4+?! A new move, but unlikely to be repeated 5...Bd7 6.Qc2 Nc6 7.a3 a5 8.d3 Bg7 9.Nbd2 0-0 10.b3 Qc8!? 11.h3?! playing into black's hands. after 0-0 white would be fine 11...e5 12.Rb1 Re8 13.b4 axb4 14.axb4 Bf8! 15.b5 Nb4 16.Qb3 c6! turning the b4 night into an asset rather than a liabiliyy. 17.bxc6 bxc6 18.Ng5 Kg7 19.c5 Nfd5 20.Nge4 Qc7 21.Nc4 Reb8 22.0-0 f5 23.Ned6 Na6! the situation appears desperate for white, but now ikeda uncorks a sensational queen sacrifice which completely destabilises his grand master opponent. 24.Qb7!! Rxb7 25.Rxb7 Qd8 26.Bxd5 Nxc5? 27.Bh6+ Kxh6 28.Nf7+ Kg7 29.Nxd8 cxd5? 30.Ne6+ Kf6 31.Nxc5 Bxc5 32.Nxe5! Kxe5 33.Rxd7 Ra2 34.Rc1 Bb4 35.Rc6 g5 36.Rd8 f4 37.Re8+ 1-0

although some moves are dubious they still play an important part in this game. even when there was a win for black wich he missed earlier the pyschological was too much for him and he couldn't find the right move!

see if you can find the win for black!?
