World Championship Match 2017, Game 24

A Game with mind-boggling complications!
-----------------------------------------------------

After the morning session produced a very complicated struggle on the uneven 1. 10-14 23-19, 2. 11-15 opening, the opening balloted for the afternoon session was 11-16 23-19, 2.16x23.
This opening is one of the twelve "new"openings that were only approved at the beginning of this century. The opening carries the name "Black Widow" for a very apparent reason...

In game 23 Sergio Scarpetta choose a tame approach with black and Miki managed to equalize and after a hard fought ending a draw was the logical result.
The climax of the day however was game 24, in which Miki with the stronger side applied much pressure on his challenger, but in a mind-boggling game that is full of sacrifices and complications, he may have missed the win.

With that result, Sergio Scarpetta moves another step closer to his object to become the new World Champion.

Notes:
-------------
(A) Maybe 10.12-16 is better approach and a win.

"2-16 wins after 19-15, continue 15-8 4-11, 31-27, 1-6, 24-20, 6-9, 28-24, 13-17, 27-23, 22-26, 24-19, 26-31, 19-12, 11-16, 20-11 etc red wins. I won this game in July 2008 playing master player on line. 18-14 at the 7th move for white is a definite loss. Miki had Sergio in definite loss but did not finish. Mac Banks"

"Kingsrow cannot get a definitive result before move 10. However, after 10. 4-8 the game is clearly in a draw until 19. 1-6, which is a black loss. Instead black has to play 12-16 to draw." (Ed Gilbert)


(B) With little time on his clock, Sergio chooses a save draw instead of further complications including a positional sacrifice by 20. ... 8-11, 21. 16-19 and only now 21. ... 14-10!, after which it might be very hard for red,tough a man up temporarily, to achive the save haven of a draw.

" At 20. 14-10, white gives up the win." (Ed Gilbert)
