9...Nd4!
The decisive blow.








   
10. hxg4
White must give his queen. If 10. Nxd4, then 10...Qh2, checkmate. Or 10. Qd3 Nxf3+ 11. Qxf3 Qh2, checkmate.
10...Nxe2+ 11. Bxe2 a6 12. Rd1 b5!
Opening the way for the light-squared bishop. Queen is better than two knights, but Black must play accurately to win.

Black fights for the open file.
23. Rxc8 Rxc8 24. Bf4 Qa5 25. Bb1 Qb4 26. b3 Bg5!? 27. Bxg5 hxg5 28. Kh2!?
A trap?! Yes! Silence!
