In Game 5, Aleksandra, a pawn ahead, accepts the trade–a Rook for a Bishop and 2 pawns–at move 19, and simplifies to an endgame where both players had passed pawns, threatening to promote them to a Queens.
The position after 21. h4 cxd4 22. Bd7+ Kxe5 23. Bxc8 Rxc8.
On move 51, after creating a passed pawn of her own, Aleksandra moved her Rook from c4 to f4 (Rf4), and her f-pawn is unstoppable!
