  wallnuts23: What the? Why does black resign...or did he lose on time? Nd5 is clever, but I'm not sure whether white really got much out of it, well, according to my analysis, it really seems like a draw by perpetual check...I might be mistaken...

  wallnuts23: Whoops! Oh yeah, after kf7, e6+!!!
Ouch, takes the queen the next move...and if the king is moved elsewhere, the rook is taken with check! Nice sacrifice, Gelfand!
