Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-30-04  greystar69: Isn't 22. Rxd8 equally devastating? I guess 21... Bxe5 is more a move of desparation, thought the continuation after 21... Qe8 is also not clear to me.
Apr-24-07  sammy desandoli: 21...Qe8, 22.Bxg7 Kxg7, 23.Rh5 mate soon to follow.

22.Rxd8 Rfxd8 Black has good chances, White rook on h is useless,black can double rooks on d file, whites bishop is very strong, black king is safe for now, white king exposed.

Jan-12-09  Phantom.Nightmare: 22.Qh6! basically finishes the game off. A very good ending of a nice played game.
Apr-18-10  UnsoundHero: After 22 Qxh6, if 22...Bf6 23 Rg5+! Bxg5 24 hxg5, followed by mate on h7 or h8. What a convenient way to get some use out of the dormant Rh1.
Jun-28-12  shakman: Couple of games in same opening:

Bacrot vs Karjakin, 2009

Ponomariov vs Judit Polgar, 2002
