  saffuna: Looks like Karjakin had this totally won, then threw it away with 35. Qd5. I think 35. Rxb7 was an easy winner.

Rxb7 was an easy winner.> I guess if black plays 33..Rg6 to pin the Q, white counters with 34. Rxe7+. And if 35 Rxb7...Qd6, 36. e5, then Rb6 still doesn't work because 37. exd6..RxQ, 38. KxR
Dec-27-16  PhilFeeley: <saffuna> 35. Rxb7 Rg6, then what?

  saffuna: 36. Rxe7+?
Dec-27-16  ChessHigherCat: Correction of my last line: 36. e5, then Rg6 still doesn't work because 37. exd6..RxQ, 38. KxR I don't know why I keep mixing up b and g today
