After beating Antoaneta Stefanova in the 3rd game of the Women's World Championship, Anna Ushenina of Ukraine came to the press conference. She was as usually quite laconic in her commentaries. 

"I got an idea of exchanging my two pieces for the rook during the game, then I managed to grab advantage in wild complications." Ushenina thinks everything else should be analyzed with the computer.

It's noteworthy that the sacrifice of the piece on d5 has taken place in practice for three times and in the quite high level games; however, it's doubtful that anyone will dare to repeat the game with Black after "analyzing it with computer."

It seems that Stefanova missed the last chance of building a solid defence on the 23rd move: 23...Ne4! attacking the bishop. After 23...Nxb7? the only question was if Ushenina would do everything correctly in order to convert her advantage.
