  Marmot PFL: Tough fight and Radjabov comes out on top. Perhaps Svidler overlooked 37...d4, but 38 Rc4 and white is still fine.

  haydn20: Superficially, I have 38. Rc4 dxe3+ 39. Qxe3 Rd8 40. Rxc5 bxc5 41.Qxc5 Qxc5+ 42. Rxc5 Rd2+ 43. Ke3 Rxb2 44. Rxa5 Rxg2 and maybe White has an edge because of the passer. I thought the position was dead equal from 12-26, with a lot of positional manoeuvering, like in an English maybe.

  Ezzy: After Svidler played 38 Rd1 he just overlooked that 39...Qf6 threatens mate in 4 starting with 40...Qh4+ and so didn't have time to capture the rook on c8 with his bishop.
