Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-19-13  Nerwal: At move 25 it feels like white has something going as she has three excellent attacking pieces : ♖d6, ♘g5 and ♗c4. But two of them are hanging, and the rook can be exchanged, so, what to do. Koneru sensibly went 25. ♗b3 and later nicely outplayed Ju Wenjun in an opposite colored bishop endgame - it's really not Ju Wenjun's forte. Meanwhile, it feels like 25. ♗e6!? (25. ♗e2 is also interesting) could be the right move, but after 25... ♘e5! the position becomes quite messy. Chess engines found an unusual idea : after 25. ♗e6 ♘e5 26. ♖d8+ ♖f8 27. ♖xf8+ ♗xf8 28. ♗xc8 hxg5 (28... ♖xc8 29. ♘e6 wins a pawn) 29. hxg5+ ♔g8, they suggest 30. ♗a6!! :

The bishop is stuck completely out of play, but it is impossible to catch it, and in the resulting endgame the threat of ♗b7 will give black all kinds of headache.
