Candidates Tactics

This is the position in the game between Ivanchuk and Grischuk in the 2013 Candidates tournament.
It is white's turn now! What can you tell about white's move and the game result?


  1. White has lost. He has to guard the possible Queen promotion by black whilst teh bloack king merrily comes along to take all the white pawns and promotes the straggling black pawn to a queen.

    1. This game is actually draw. White can hold those 2 pawns of black and he can also save his pawns by making it connected by playing g4.
