Post WCC 2011 – 4-b – Gata Kamsky vs Peter Svidler
Peter Svider had just won World Cup Chess 2011 undefeated to throw a real challenge to Carlsen and Anand. He showed his class in positional as well as tactical chess, reminiscent of Kasparov of old days. Interestingly, he is one of the three players (the other two are, Vassily Ivanchuk, Joel Lautier) who won against all World Champions since 1975 (Anatoly Karpov, Garry Kasparov, Vladimir Kramnik, Alexander Khalifman, Viswanathan Anand, Ruslan Ponomariov, Rustam Kasimdzhanov, and Veselin Topalov).
Here he demolishes Gata Kamsky in a beautiful tactical stroke which even Stockfish failed to evaluate correctly.

White just played 28.Nxb8® and loses in another 3 moves! What is Black’s reply?

Well I won't spoil it since I've seen Dennis' excellent video on the game, but this is not quite the best move.

Qg3... Nc6 saves the day, i guess... white is still up a rook.

I assumed that the continuation is available for all to see.Here it is, 26. .. Re2 27.Qc3 Rxf2 28.Nc6 Rxf1++ (White resigns).

If 27.Qxe2 Qg3 !! 28.Nc6 Bxc6 and Black wins in another 5 moves. Note by Qxe2, White queen is diverted and can not recapture Black c6 Bishop to avoid mate.

If 26. .. Qg3 ?? 27.Nc6 !! and if now 27. .. Re2 (27. .. BxN 28.QxN is easy win for White) 28.Qc3 Bxf2+ 29.Kh1 Qxc3 30.bxc3 bxc6 is draw (= evaluation by Houdini Chess engine). However, it is a tight rope walk . Any deviation gives a sure win to the other player. I am not giving variations as they are complex.

Marvelous Super Grandmaster chess.
