  Gilmoy: Black spends all that time chasing the R, then curiously accepts <26..Qxd8 27..Qe8> ceding the d-file and two more tempi just to step out of the pin -- why? Was covering f7 that important?

After <36.Bg2> White's minor piece is a better fit for his passed-pawn plan: denies Ra8, threatens Bb7, or axb6-b7. Hence a6 is doomed regardless, and Black might as well go straight for the K.

Cute: The entire middlegame is one big zwieschen-chain, solely to win 1 tempo for <32.a5>!
