What a nice move.

  HeMateMe: Why didn't black play 17...Qxc3? There doesn't seem to be any reason to not win the pawn.

  Everett: <HeMateMe> <17..Qxc3 18.Rc1 Qb4 19.Rc4 Qa5 20.Rc7> looks uncomfortable for Black, but who knows. Maybe he can get away with taking the pawn.

Moves 24 and 42 for White are nice positional pawn sacs. Worth remembering.

  HeMateMe: Yes, Gata gave up a pawn and kept the initiative. Nice work.
