Paragua Attacks!

What exactly did GM Paragua eat? Maybe he had some of that local hot curry. Whatever it was, his play against compatriot Barlo Nadera left the board ablaze. The attack was unrelenting, prosecuted with such an intensity of young man screaming, "Paragua in da house!" In the following position, what would you play?


The game continued: 18. Nxd5!! Qd8 (18... exd5 19. Bb4) 19. Bb4+ Nd6 20. Nf4 Kf7 21. Rad1 Qf6 22. Rxd6 axb5 23. Nd5 Qe5 24. Qc2 Rf8 25. Qc7+ Kg8 26. Bc3 exd5 27. Bxe5 Bxe5 28. Rxg6+ hxg6 29. Qxe5 Ra6 30. Qxd5+ Be6 31. Qxb5 Rf7 32. a3 Rc6 33. Re1 Rfc7 34. Qg5 Bf7 35. h4 Rc5 36. Qd8+ Kg7 37. Re7 1-0

On board 1, Roca did not survive against Vietnamese grandmaster, Dao Thien Hai. And the same fate befell Torre - losing to Indonesia's Edhi Handoko. For the rest of today's results, check out Gilachess' website.
