Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-11-14  Knight13: On the alternative <38. Ng5>: 38... Rxa3 39. Nxe6 Rxg3 loses a pawn and leaves White with a terrible King position, which is probably why White chose 39. Rc3.

On the alternative <39... Rxa4>: White loses a pawn after 39... Rxa4 40. Rc5 Ra2 with the threat of Kh5-g4 still intact. 39... Rxa4 40. Rc6 Rxb4 41. Rxe6+ Kh5 leads to 42. Kg2, so does 40... Kh5 41. Kg2, saving White's Knight; but after 39... Rxa4 40. Rc6 Kf6 White will inevitably lose the b-pawn--39... Rxa4 40. Kg2 Rxb4 just loses the pawn quicker. Still, it seems to offer White slightly better chances than the text move, even though White is badly losing in either case.

The variation 41. Rc1? leads to 41... Kh5 Ng1 42. Kg3!.
