  fredthebear: Viktor Kupreichik lives up to his reputation!

White is losing ground down two pawns, but then seizes the initiative by gaining time on the Black queen. White makes use of open diagonals and half-open files to prevent castling and threaten mate on e7. Sacrificing the exchange and maintaining, then robbing the pin shows a grandmaster's touch.

Once again, the castled king wins.
