  tamar: Trapper trapped!

White sacs the exchange to play for the trap of the rook at b5, but neglects to notice that Safarli sets his own trap with 38...h5

Taking 39 gxh5 would win, but sensing no danger, Bok took the c2 pawn, to be met with 39...g5!! winning.

No way to prevent a passed h pawn, and to stop it, White has to release Black's rook on b5.
