  GrahamClayton: Excellent combination by Sutovsky commencing with 48. ♖e7. After simplification, the Black King is imprisoned by the f7-pawn, while the Black knight cannot stop both the White passed pawns.

  plang: White's setup with 11 Re1 and 12 Bf4 delaying c4 looks logical and had not been tried before. Sutovsky thought that 13..h6 would have been a better defense. 41..Ng4 42 Rg3..Rxh2+ 43 Qxh2..Nxh2 44 Rxg7 would have been winning for White.

Voted the sixth best game in Informant 82.
