Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-10-11  Everett: 33.d7 is both crafty and strong, reminiscent of Bronstein's famous win over Botvinnik in '51

If 33..Qxa3 then 34.d8=Q+ Kg7 35.Qg8+ Kf6 36.Qf7#

In the end, if 35..Kg8 36.Qa2+ Qf7 36.Bc4 is a straightforward win. Black could even try 35..Kg8 36.Qa2+ Ne6 37.Qxe6+ Qf7 but will suffer even more material loss or mate after 38.Bh7+!.
