White needs to maintain the tension or make a swap on e5. Instead he advances his centre pawns which only makes Josh's black-squared bishop stronger.} 16.d5 $2 ( 16.dxe5 Nxe5 17.Nd5 {or 16. dxe5 dxe5 17. Qxd7 are both better for white than the move played} ) 16... Bh3 17.e4 $4 {It's unappetising but white needs to play 17.f3 or 17.Qd3 to stay in the game.} 17...Qg4 18.Qd3 Bxg2 19.Kxg2 Nh4+ 20.Kh1 Qh3 {Paul realises too late that the g-pawn is pinned.} 21.Rg1 Ng4 {A lovely picture for Josh!} 0-1
