  DaltriDiluvi: This was a must-win game for Artemiev.

  fredthebear: Interposing between check by 42.Rb2 is not sufficient. Do you see why?

  DaltriDiluvi: Well, I watched the game on a YouTube channel and the commentators pointed it out for me: <42.Rb2 Qxb2+! 43.Kxb2 Nd3+> and Black gets the queen back.

  fredthebear: Correct! It's a sham queen sacrifice if the rook interposes. The rook is lost, and both queens come off the board. Here's a diagram of the knight fork 43...Nd3+

Here is the game video link:

I rarely post video links without human commentators giving analysis in English. However, the link above provides visible move-by-move engine evaluations and uses arrows to point out threats, so we'll make an exception.

The lesson to be learned is that so many extended pawns leave many weak squares behind that are easily penetrated by the opposing pieces.
