The 2019 Cote d’Ivoire Rapid & Blitz is one of four new events that is part of the Grand Chess Tour roster in 2019. The event was won by the current World Champion Magnus Carlsen.

In this position French Grandmaster Maxime Vachier-Lagrave (equal 2nd) is playing the white pieces against Wesley So.

Whistle  Black (to play) resigned.
Why can't he get back into the game by taking the pawn on d5 ?
