Jowenn Lua at NSW 2009 Australia Day Weekender

In an earlier blog on the NSW 2009 Australia Day Weekender at Norths, I reported on Jowenn Lua's excellent performance (see here at http://rydeeastwoodchessclub.blogspot.com/2009/02/ryde-eastwood-at-nswca-australia-day.html). I also mentioned that I saw part of his game with Karel Hursky where there were some very nice tactical shots played. Well, I finally managed to get the game off him and here it is:



It seems, to me, the fireworks began on move 28 Nc6, followed by massive exchanges but Fritz still reckons that Black has slight advantage. Then 33...Rb8 according to Fritz allowed White to turn the game around. Do you agree with Fritz?

Please feel free to comment on the game especially if you think there is any improvement. Otherwise enjoy the scintillating play.
