33.? Wednesday at most, at least for current standards, there aren't as many moves available. This doesn't make this combination one to neglect, however.

The point is that it actually starts after 30....dxe5? (~1,10 instaed of 30....Rxe5 ~0,20=). And I have to admit, I put my question mark after Black's 30th before I saw the combination simply because the Rook capture looks way more solid. After dxe5, Black's position crumbles.

Rybka continues:

Analysis by Rybka 2.2n2 mp 32-bit :

1. : 31.d6 Rec3 32.d7 Rd8 33.Bd5 e4 34.g4

On account of 34....e3 (otherwise there's pretty much zugzwang) 35.gxf5 e2 36.Rg1! . Nice end.
