  perfidious: It's unclear to me why Sutovsky rejected the alternative 23.Bxc3 Nf4 24.Nxf4, as the game continuation was clearly losing for him.

  NARC: I think it is because of 24. ... Rxd1 25. Rxd1 Qxf4
May-30-11  Catfriend: An excellent question, <perfidious>!

<NARC> The line actually ends with a very pleasant situation for White. Two bishops and two rooks are a great combination, on such an empty board. I don't see how White could lose this.

The only explanation I can see is that Sutovski missed 24..Rxe2! or 26..f5, possibly in time-trouble. After all, without any of these moves, White's winning.

Byrne gives 26 Bf3..Be4 27 Bd2..Qd6 28 Be3..Qg6 29 Bxe4..Rxe4 30 Bc5 and White should be OK.
