  perfidious: A tremendous attacking game by Svidler.

The position after 14....Be6 provides an obvious exchange sacrifice, but without Black's resourceful counter at move 17, Svidler would not have had the chance to play the elegant coup 19.Qe2.

A Sunday POTD without question.

Mar-23-17  clement41: Tonight we analyzed the position following 18...Qxd4 and no one (including among several 2000+ players) could find 19 Qe2!

Difficult to understand, because after Yedidia's counter, White has apparently blown out and 19.Qe2 is the only move to even stay on the board.

The key, of course, lies in what would have followed the obvious defence 19....Qxa1`20.Qxe7 Qg7: 21.Bb2 wins at once.
