  naresb: 48. Rg1 was a blunder by white, he could have instead played 48. a5 to exert pressure on b6. After 46... Rdd8 followed with 47... Kd6, the support to b6 Pawn was reduced by one.

With 48. a5 he could have captured 'b6' Pawn and then aligning both Rooks on 'a' file along with Bc4, put pressure on 'a6 Pawn and thus punctured the queenside.
