  Honza Cervenka: 29.Rxd5 is a nice shot. Although the material is quite reduced and black is a Rook up, he cannot stop the attack against his King without heavy material losses. If 33...g5, then 34.Qf6+ Kh5 35.h3 (threatening g4+ with a mate.) 35...Re4 (35...Ne5 36.Bxe5 ; 35...Re6 36.Qf7+ with a mate; 35...Qe6 36.g4+ Kh4 37.Qf3 ) 36.Qg7 h6 (or 36...Qf5 37.f3 ) 37.g4+ Rxg4 38.hxg4+ Kxg4 39.Qxh6 with a winning ending.
