15... Nb7 16.Nf1 Ne8!?

a useful, waiting move

( a5 17.g4 ( 17.Ng3!? 17...

17.Be3 a5 18.a3 Ra6 19.Qc1 Rba8 20.N3h2 Nd8 21.g4 g6 22.Ng3 f6!

a typical regrouping move for Black

23.Kg2 Nf7 24.Ra2 Qb8 ( axb4 25.cxb4 Bd8 26.Ne2 Qb8 27.Nc3 Bb6 =/+ )

25.Bb1 Bd8! 26.Rae2 Bb6 27.Bd2 axb4 28.axb4 Ra1 29.Qc2

now Black slowly brings his pieces to the kingside.

33.Rd2 Qd8 ( h5 34.Rh1 h4 35.Ngf1 f5)

34.Rh1 Qe7 35.Nhf1 Rg8 36.Rh2 h5!

the time is ripe for a breakthrough!

( f5 37.exf5 gxf5 38.Kh1 Qh4)

37.gxh5 ( 37.Kh1 h4 38.Ne2 f5! )

37... gxh5 38.Kh1 h4 39.Nf5 ( 39.Ne2 Ng5 40.Ng1 Qf7 41.Bc1 Nh5 42.Rb2 Nxh3 43.Nxh3 Bg4! 44.f3 Bxh3 45.Rxh3 Rg1+ 46.Kh2 Qg6 -+ )

39... Nxf5 40.exf5 Ng5 41.Rg2 Qh7! attacking the weak f5 pawn.

42.Qg4 Be8! with the deadly threat of Be8-h5 then Bf3!   

43.Nh2 Rag7 44.f4 Bh5 45.fxg5 Bxg4 46.g6 Bxh3 47.gxh7 Bxg2+ 48.Rxg2 Rxg2 49.hxg8=R+ Rxg8 50.Nf3 Rg3 51.Be4 Rg4 52.Bc2 e4 53.Nd4 Bxd4 54.cxd4 e3

White's king is cut off while his bishops are helpless against the Black's passed pawns & the rook, so White resigned.
