Nijboer is trying to create confusion: 23...Rh5! 24.Qd2 [He cannot touch the pawn: 24.Qxg7 Ne8 25.Qg8 the only square left for the queen. 25...f5 26.Qg6 Bf7 and the lady is lost!] 24...Rd8 25.Qc1 a4 26.Rf3 Rd6 [26...Nxe4 27.Bxe4 Qc4 threatening ...Qxa2# 28.b3 Qxe4 29.Rxd8 Kxd8 30.Rd3+ Anish Giri said that he did not trust this variation entirely: "I thought it was dangerous and could ruin my attack. Frisor was already in time trouble and could not do much, so I decided to keep the pressure on."] 27.Re1 Kf8 28.b3 Nd7 29.Ref1 f6 30.Qe1 Kf7 31.Rg1 Rh8 32.g3 Rc8 33.gxh4 Has White managed to create counterplay on the g-file?
