  patzer2: Ivanchuk's little demolition of pawn structure combination, starting with 47...Rxe3!, is an instructive exchange pseudo-sacrifice. His technique in winning with Bishop and Queen versus Rook and Queen is worthy of study, and demonstrates strong tactics likely to be useful in club and tournament play.

Note that in the final position, White resigns as he cannot effectively parry 58. Kh1 Qf1+ 59. Kh2 Bxe3!, because the dual threats of 60...Bf4+ (e.g. 60. Qg5 Bf4+ 61. Bxf4 winning the Queen) and 60...Qg1# are decisive:
