  kenilworthian: "It would have been more consistent to bring about the central blockade by 17.Nb3! Qb6 18.Bxb5 Qxb5 19.Rad1 " writes Sveshnikov.

  kenilworthian: And Sveshnikov things 33.g3 followed by penetration with Qe7 - d6 would have led to a big edge.

  Honza Cervenka: 36.Red1 is a typical move of wrong Rook. 36.Rbd1! was winning instantly, for example 36....Qb2 37.Rc1! Bd7 38.Nh6+ Kh8 39.Qxf4! Rxf4 40.Rc8+! Bxc8 41.Re8+ with mate.

  Honza Cervenka: Another lovely finish could have been 36.Rbd1 Ne6 37.Rxe6 Qxd1 38.Nh6+ Kh8 39.Rf6 Re8 40.Qe5! (diagram)
