  OhioChessFan: The prosaic 51. Qe8 is fine too. Nd5 is a spectacular move anyway.
May-16-13  Eyal: 40.Qd6!, trapping the black queen, would have been an earlier killer - the threat of b4 is decisive (40...c5 41.Bxc5; 40...Nxg2 41.Bc5).

<Eyal: 40.Qd6!, trapping the black queen, would have been an earlier killer - the threat of b4 is decisive (40...c5 41.Bxc5; 40...Nxg2 41.Bc5).>

Nepomniachtchi vs Moiseenko (variation) 14th Euro Indiv Chess Ch (11.1) 2013 40 Qd3-d6! takes away the c7- and d8-flights of the Black a5-queen, leaving her TRAPPED ON THE EDGE OF THE BOARD. Notice that 39 ... Ne6-f4? is a blunder because it LEAVES BEHIND the c7- and d8-flight squares of the Black a5-queen, leaving her without the SUPPORT she needs to move there if White should play the winning 40 Qd3-d6! .

[Arkadij Naiditsch]

40.Qd2? White is missing a win on the 40th move. <[40. Qd6! would finish the game on the spot. 40...Nxg2 41. Bf2 Black has no defense against White’s b4, winning a full queen!]>

40 ♕d3-d6! is essentially a brilliant <DOUBLE ATTACK> against two squares: the <FLIGHT> c7-flight square of the <OFFSIDE> Black a5-queen and the <SUPPORT> b4-support square supporting the terrible threat of <TRAPPING> the Black a5-queen with the simple pawn thrust b3-b4.
