  Mateo: As almost always a very interesting game from Moro. It seems that Sokolov cannot save the ending after 43.Qxc3?.

Maybe he should have tried 43.Ne7+. If 43...Nxe7 44.fxe7 Qxe5 (44...Rxe7 45.Qxc3 bxc3 46.Rc1 is equal) 45.Nxe5 Rxe7 46.Rd1 offers drawing prospects. It seems that White wins back a pawn.
