  IMlday: I probably would have played 10.Bb3 c4!? 11.dxc4 dxe4 likely with a complex endgame of ♗♗ vs ♘♘ and weird pawns.

  fredthebear: Shape-shifting pawn moves of Black:

The sacrifice 12...f6 is interesting. Better to be rid of the pawn than allow Bf6 blocking a backward pawn, restricting Black's movement. Computer evaluations won't like the gift, but the position is more comfortable for Black to manage. As it turns out, there was a fair amount of activity on the f-file that would have been otherwise denied to Black.

36...h6! politely removes the defender. It's the beginning of the end. How many of us would have missed such a simple flank move?
