Timely Tactics #7 - Giri vs. Aronian

Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort

Lev Aronian forshadowed his first overall at the 2011 Amber Rapid and Blindfold Tournament with this win over Anish Giri in the 1st round of the rapid (G/25) section. Aronian played a Dutch Defense and had to defend for a bit against a passed d-pawn, but apparently had the path to a win in hand when Giri erred with 37. Rh1. How did Lev swoop in to claim his prize?

See if you can spot the move, then play over the whole game score after the break.
