1. Nf3 g6 2. c4 Bg7 3. e3 Nf6 4. d4 d5  {I thought the
Grunfeld offered more chances to play actively than the King's Indian
with ...d6}
 5. Nc3 O-O 6. Be2 dxc4 7. Bxc4 Nfd7 {Black is a
tempo up on a variation of the Queen's Gambit Accepted, but it's not a
very good variation and even with the extra tempo Black's position is
difficult to activate.} 8. O-O Nc6

e4
{Both sides were getting rather short of time: about 15m left for the
next 10 tricky moves. White, having played very well up to here, grabs
a hot pawn.}

recapture loses the Queen!)}

  33. Bc5 Rxb2 {?}
 (33... Rxg2+)

after} 34... Rxg2+ 35. Kh1 Rxh2+ 36. Kxh2 Qf4+ 37. Kg1 Qg3+ 38. Kf1

  34... Rxg2+ {?}
 (34... Qxd4+ {simple, really, and forcing, so I should have
spotted it, but I had fallen into a rut of thinking about the move
actually played.} 35. Rxd4 Bxd4+ 36. Kf1 Rxb7 37. Bxb7)
 35. Kxg2
 (35. Kh1 {! declining, was the critical line: Now}
 35... Qf3
 36. Qb3 Bxd4 37. Qxf3 exf3 38. Rxd4 {when Black has some chances
with the pawns against the piece, but the Queen's side pawns are split.})

perpetual check})

 (37... Qf3+ 38.Kg1 Bxd4# {The Black Bishop, which has been
sitting bored at home on g7 all game, finally has its
moment.
At this point, after some grunts (expressions of disbelief, I think), my
opponent paid me his compliment: A f*cking cheapo, you bl**dy swindling bastard.
