White to play and mate in 3!
Ofcourse, Black is a piece up but White is still fighting. How did Kamsky put a quick end to the game?

Black is clearly suffering, but seems to have dug in deep and is not willing to go down easily. The key to the position is to recognize the most vulnerable point in Black’s camp and to attack it without remorse.
