  Honza Cervenka: A model game by Karpov. He creates IQP and exloits it in quite convincing way.

  George Wallace: Stockfish 14 has it equal until black plays 39...a5??, after which white has a winning advantage

The engine recommends 39...Rxf2=

  Honza Cervenka: 39...Rxf2 was definitely better. After 40.Rxa6 Rg2 41.Kf3 Rb2 42.Rb6 g5 black can hold the ending, and 41.Rd6 Rxg3 42.Rd3 Rg5 43.Rb3 Rb5 is probably holdable as well.
