Oct-12-12  vinidivici: Pure beauty...

Kamsky sacrificed all his rooks to two minor pieces (bishop and knight) for the sake's of the pawn structure at the centre. And it paid off!

  OhioChessFan: Maybe 37...Bxd6 38. Rxd6 a5 39. Rxh6 axb4 40. Bd4 Rec8 could hold?

I get the sense Black was in time trouble during the 30's moves.

  OhioChessFan: Fritz found 31...b5 instead of b6, to keep the Knight off c4.
Oct-14-12  vinidivici: GOTD please!
