Budapest Xmas Open 2012 Rd5
Here’s my rd5 game. I was winning for a large part of the game and then received a shock on the last move of the game.
‘You should at least say that 63. … cxb4 ?? is the Blunder. The answer 64.Qf7 would have been more striking…And your comment “wins the trapped bishop” is funny. Why on earth shall someone win this useless bishop?’-Thomas Heyl
Xmas Open (5), 29.12.2012
Black has a great positon. White is playing without Ba2 and has a completely static pawn structure. How should black continue?

Things look bleak for white. Black threatens …Qa3# and is a pawn up with a fantastic knight. What should white do?
