  Calli: I guess Vallejo missed 48...f5 (if 49.exf5 Bd5). Otherwise he would have moved 48.Kf2 or Rg3 maybe.
Mar-03-04  ctrlaltdel: how can you play 48...f5 when your f pawn is already on 4?

and 48. Rg3 gives the rook to f pawn...

what am i missing or what are you talking about?

  Calli: Oops, sorry, wrong move number. I meant 46...f5 as in the game. So the previous post should read

"I guess Vallejo missed 46...f5 (if 47.exf5 Bd5). Otherwise he would have moved 46.Kf2 or Rg3 maybe."

Mar-03-04  solstys: Radjabov's last move is very nice also. He will capture white's bishop with a check (otherwise white loses his rook) and saves his e-pawn as well.
