  tamar: 27 h6! took me by surprise.

Things looked bleak when Jobava played 23 h5. It looked like he was fishing for counter play a pawn down, but the pawn survives to the finish!

  adamico: If white plays 22. Qxb7, black can counter with Rc1+ 23. Rxc1 Qxc1 and black has a queen, rook and 1 extra pawn vs. 2 rooks and a knight. A nice little tactic.
Mar-15-10  esticles: <tamar> me too! Such a pretty move--the indirect defense of the pawn by the rook via lateral pin on g6 is on of those unusual patterns that the human brain (mine at least) has irrational trouble spotting.

While black's extra pawn looks difficult to hold onto (as the bishop is pretty helpless against the knight), I'm still surprised that white won this from that position. Anyone know where black might have lost the thread?
