  Honza Cervenka: 28...Rf8? was a mistake which allowed white to make pretty winning shot 29.Nf5! Of course, if black takes the Knight, then Qg3+ with next Rxf5 wins easily, for example 29...gxf5 30.Qg3+ Kh7 31.Rxf5 Ra6 (The only move, 31...Kh6 32.Bd1 is hopeless, and 32.Rxh5+! Kxh5 33.Qg7 with threat Bd1+ wins even faster) 32.Rxe5 h4 33.Qf4 Qd8 34.d6 Rxd6 (34...Qxd6 35.Qxh4+ ; 34...Ne6 35.Rh5+ Kg8 36.Qh6 ) 35.Rxc5 etc. Also 29.Nxh5 was possible but 29.Nf5 is better.
