  fredthebear: 38.Ke3 forces 38...Rg2, else the Rook is lost. This sets up the fork 39.Ne1, which looks like trouble for Black. Then Tarrasch gives up his rook and soon after has the better ending even though he's down the exchange. One would not imagine the Na3 inflicting such damage thereafter. Black's connected passed pawns are overwhelming.

40.Kf2 is the losing move at this critical stage. Interposing with 40.Bf3 prevents Tarrasch's rook combination. Dropping the exchange was nothing exceptional, but the Black bishop and knight really come alive thereafter.
