  An Englishman: Good Evening: The ...Rxf3 Exchange sacrifice makes an occasional appearance in the 3.Nd2,Nf6 variation on the French Defense, and it did not surprise me to see it here given the similarity of the pawn structures after 17.Re1. Nonetheless, kept thinking that surely White had a better defense somewhere--until Black played the brilliant 43...Re4!!

Behold! When Aaron raised his arm the Moon stood still.
And when Aaron lowered his arm the Moon went forth.
And so it continued for the whole of the night, when Aaron raised his arm the Moon stood still, and when Aaron lowered his arm the Moon went forth.
It was a really crappy clock.
Mar-23-19  goodevans: An absorbing game that was nip and tuck right to the end.

White obviously didn't see the brilliant <43...Re4!> coming. Had he spotted it then instead of defending f3 he should have made room for his K with <43.Bh3!>. If <43...Rxf3> then <44.Qe2> takes care of the back rank threats which can now be answered with Rd1.

Mar-23-19  Honey Blend: The simple 43. ♖d1 would have defended nicely. White would most likely at some point lose f3 and has to deal with Black's passed c-pawn, but looks to have fair drawing chances.
