  Gypsy: Nothing works (in the final position):

(1) 42...Kf8 43.Rg8#.

(2) 42...Kd7 43.Rg7+ Rxg7 44.fxg7... and the g-pawn promotes.

(3) 42...Kd8 43.Rf8+ Ne8 44.Ba4... and Black is ruined once again.

  Penguincw: Directly from chessbase:

< "The opening did not go as planned for the Frenchman, and he emerged with a small but clear minus. In spite of energetic positional play by the Russian, the leader held on, if with difficulty, but a mistake on move 33 was all it took to decisively end resistance, after which it was merely a matter of when, not if." >

Thanks <Penguincw> for this excellent link the annotations are superb.
