Magic Move: Can you find it?

Alexandra Kosteniuk's Chess News & Trivia (c) 2010

Hello Everyone,

There are two kinds of magic moves - One that make you win a game when you're on the verge of losing and one that gives you a win out of the blue when nothing apparently seems to be happening.

Here is a magic move of the second kind. This game was played in a simul and Black is doing just fine against the 13th World Chess Champion Gary Kasparov.

White can go on playing the game but there is a magic move that promises a sure win. Can you find it?

We will give you the answer tomorrow - for a change - and not immediately! So, take your time to think.
