WYCC 2012 Under 16 Open Itkin,D(CAN)

This game deserves some kind of prize for dramatic content.

White had the upper hand in the early part of the game and then missed many winning/strong lines. The black came back to also miss multiple chances. Then, very late black blundered and white got a magical lighting strike for a mating attack.

Here is one of the key moments. Black is a piece up in a messy looking position. How should black play?
