Nguyen however blunder with 40... Rxd7?? 40...g6+- would give more resistant

41.Rc4+!! a powerful sacrifice which decides the game 41.cxd7?! is not good because black can still hold after 41...Nc3 42.Bc8 g6 41...Rxc4 now black rook is diverted from d file which is important to stop white passed pawn on d file! 42.cxd7 Rc1+ 43.Kd2 and black can stop white from queening 43... Rc5 44.d8Q+- 1–0
