  beenthere240: I suppose black quits because he can't save his c pawn. Is there anything more dramatic?

  keypusher: Yes, after the exchange of rooks the bishop will be totally immobilized. Nxc4-d6 wins it.

I love this game! Same opening as in Carlsen's horrible loss to Korobov in the rapids.

  keypusher: If the king comes over then White can ignore the black pawn and just push his own. E.g. 25....h6 26.b5 Bc8 27.Rd1 Rxd1 28.Kxd1 Kf8 29.a5 Ke7 30.b6 axb6 31.axb6 Kd6 and White can win the bishop immediately or 32.Kc2 and Black will soon run out of moves.
