More Tactics

I had not played in a tournament in several years but couldn’t resist in playing in this event and this game was one of the last tournament games I played. I don’t remember the results but do remember losing in the last round to a player who would, in a few years, get his IM title.
This position makes a nice tactical study.  Evidently I could not figure out the consequences of sacrificing the B so played it safe and as a result allowed my opponent to get right back in the game.  Fortunately when he played 23…d4, I was able to see that the sequence leading up to 29.Bxd7 won a piece.
