  sisyphus: After 29.Ree1, Black misses the knockout shot ...Bxf4!! If White takes the Bishop, mate follows quickly after ...Rg8. If not, checks with the Bishop or Queen force the win of material.

Even without it, Black still has the same tactic available for another three moves. Only after 32...Qxa1?? is White able to force the repetition. Maybe it was time trouble.

Kevin Wang (b. 1997) is worth watching. The word is he's been training with GM Larry Kaufman, and he "gets it."

Actually White's losing move is 27 f4??, the correct continuation was 27 Rc4! Qe5 28 Rf1 c1=Q 29 Rcc1 Bc1 30 Rc1
