  whiteshark: Pity, Sutovsky missed a nice exchange sac in the endgame <43.Rxf5!> leads to a study-like win after 43...exf5 44.Bxf5+ g6 45.c6! and black's rook can't hinder the pawn promotion.

(44...Kh6 46.c6 Kg5 47.c7 Rh8 48.c8=Q Rxc8 49.Bxc8 is also lost)

  whiteshark: <Pity II> Unfortunately black can build a fortress in my line <43...exf5 44.Bxf5+ g6 45.c6>, with <45...Rh5 46.c7 Rxf5 47.c8=Q Rh5 <=>> (and then ♖ swinging between f5+h5 only).
Jun-16-10  zanshin: <bishop55: Thus, although it is hard to say so,it is possible that 40...Rb1 was the losing move.>

Gives me a chance to try out my new Rybka 4. Top 3 Black moves:
