Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-29-12  backrank: It's all about control of the white squares c4 and e4. Then the black king migrates to the queen side to support the pawn breakthrough by c6 and b5 (to obtain a passed pawn). In trying to prevent this, White allows Black to immediately crash through in the center. 40. Kd3?? Rd2#
40. Kc1 Re1+ and 41. ... Rxc1! and regardless which way White recaptures, he always has to return the exchange!
Dec-05-12  Chris1971: Talk about vision! This game is like treading on thin ice! A combination that leaves black a rook down! Risky stuff indeed but Romanovsky sees very deep into the position and is able to pull off this fantastic win. My guts tell me that white must have something better...a game for further analysis.

  GrahamClayton: Romanovsky's knight on c4 is the key piece, protecting the pawn on b6 and giving support to the rook.
