Too complicated for me

After a rest day the 2001 Grand Slam Masters continued, with Ivanchuk continuing his winning run. Aronian was his victim in round 4, in a game that looked pretty wild to me. With so many pieces (and pawns) en pris at various stages of the game it wasn't surprising that both sides missed knock out (or saving) moves. The final mistake was by Aronian on move 32, with Ivanchuk winning a piece.
There is one more round to be player, before the players leave Sao Paulo and continue the tournament in Bilbao.

I would have expected a minority queenside attack from white near move 12
