I especially like the comment following 42.Rc6: <Maybe Jeune move in a "psychological attack" - 42 ... h5!? What is the difference as die-bullet in the head or neck from the noose on - and so, probably, zamutish water, and dry fish out of water than not feature jokes.>

Anyway, it seems that Tomashevsky made a bad decision at move 27, recapturing on d5 with the rook rather than the pawn, since after 28.c4 he has to contend with both a white passer on the c file and his own pawn(s) weakness on the e file (28...Rc5 would lose to 29.Qb6). Later, 47...Ke7? makes Inarkiev's life easier - the idea is to defend e6, but as it turns out it allows White to combine the advance of the c pawn with a direct attack on the black king. After 48.Nb3!, 48...Nxc4 would lose, of course, to 49.Qc5+ Nd6 50.Ra7.
