Sep-25-13  devere: White keeps the advantage with 42.f5! instead of 42.Nc7? If 42.f5! gf? 43.Rxh6! wins. The mistake came after the 40th move time control, so it can't be explained by time-pressure.
Sep-25-13  chesssalamander: Wow! Awesome comeback! Way to go Ivanchuk!
Sep-25-13  Hesam7: White was winning or very close to winning for some time. 29 Rh1! is an early win missed by White:

Sep-26-13  Badmojo: i dont see how devere's line wins
Sep-27-13  siggemannen: I guess his line wins after 42...gxf5 43. Rxh6 Rxh6 44. Rxh6 Kxh6 45. Nd6 and pawn promotes or 45... Rxe7 46. Nf5+ wins the rook.

Not sure gxf5 is the only option though...
