Kramnik - McShane London Chess Classic 2012
If you have not seen it yet, this is fully worth the 20 minutes of time to view: Themes of interest to me in the game are compensation for a pawn, active pieces vs. theoretical quality ( exchange sacrifice etc. ) and pawn structure. In this game White played to damage Black's structure around the Black king and the resulting weaknesses permitted White to follow with a nice exchange sacrifice.
