  Honza Cervenka: White has big advantage in the final position. He is not only a pawn up, but also he has a strong initiative. The game could continue 35...Rd3 36.Qa1 <the Queen on diagonal a1-h8 acts well.> 36...Ree3 <36...Red8 37.Rfe1 with idea Re7> 37.Bf8 Qa7 38.Bb5 Rd8 39.Rcd1 Rxd1 <39...Rxf8 40.Rd7> 40.Rxd1 Qf7 41.Bb4 Qe6 42.Bc3 Qf7 43.Bc4 Qe7 44.Bxg7+ Qxg7 45.Qxg7+ Kxg7 46.Rd7+ winning a piece.
