Sicilian defense

18.Bg2? (serious consideration needed 18.g6 fxg6 19.Bd3!) 18...Qa5! 19.Bf4 Rxh5 20.Bxe5 Qxe5 21.Qxh5 dxc3 22.Bxc6+ bxc6

23.b3? (strangely enough the only way to escape was 23.b4!! with the idea of 23...c2 24.Kxc2 Bf5+ 25.Kb3) 23...c2! 24.Rd3 Rd8! 25.Rxd8+ Kxd8 (and White is unable to protect the rook, eentually losing it - 26.Qf3 would get 26...Bd5) 0-1
