Yo jugaría Dxe4 + Txe4 y Txf2.

I looked up the game - with 38 seconds left (plus the 30 second increment) for 11 moves, Gunina decided to avoid a long, dreary endgame with 29...Re2:f2. At least she succeeded in that goal, since she resigned after 30. Q:e4+.

  1. Q:e4+ seems obvious. But there must be something I'm missing, because this hardly seems like something worth publishing.
