Timely Tactics #8 - Krush vs. Foisor

Krush v Foisor, Day 1 (jstrand) / CC BY-SA 3.0
Even at the U.S. Women's Championship, single motif tactics can be found. Here's a position from the first round game with IM & WGM Irina Krush facing WGM Sabina Foisor. Irina has erred with 30. Bb3, dropping the coverage of the queen that the bishop had provided from the c2 square. Can you see what motif wins the game for Sabina?

You can see the full game score after the break.
