  morfishine: Hard to believe no kbitzing for this game. Fascinating move-order

  fredthebear: Both colors have rook captures on the vulnerable f2 and f7 squares.

After 21...Rxf2 it initially appeared Black's upcoming discovered check would win material for a decisive edge, but Gelfand played a nice sequence to create an absolute pin along the f-file and get out of it with an exchange of rooks.
