Active King Moves w/ Heavy Pieces

A win by GM Iturrizaga at the Gibraltar Masters 2013 featured active king moves with queens and rooks on the board. A really wild game. Black probably resigned at the end because the queen ending may be hopeless but possibly worth a try.

Iturrizaga plays the modern defense atleast on occasion. This is a win by him with the modern at the same tournament. I no longer play this line myself but this is a nice win with an exchange sacrifice that is not accepted to no avail. I think Black would be just fine were the sac to be accepted.
