  Mateo: Yue never played the Gruenfeld. But he was well prepared. He introduced a novelty on move 12, instead of 12...Qc7, like in Yusupov vs Tseshkovsky, 1987 1-0.

44.Qe3? was the turning point allowing Rg4. However it was not easy to see on the board what to do against the threat Rcg7. 44.Kf1! was the best (not 44.Kh1? as Black will have mating threats) Rcg7 45.Qe3! (just in time, attacking the pawn and keeping an eye on g1) Rxg2 (now one can see the point of 44.Kf1 : there is no check) 46.Qxc5 b2 (what else?) 47.Qxd6 Rg1+ 48.Kf2 R1g2+, draw.
