  Honza Cervenka: 36.Bxf4 is absolutely fine and sufficient for win but more overwhelming and elegant finish could have been 36.Rxg6+!! Nxg6 37.Qxg6+ Kh8 (of course not 37...Kf8 for 38.Ba3+) 38.c4 and a fatal check from white Bishop is inevitable.

  Honza Cervenka: White position was already clearly superior due to Bishop pair, and it was difficult to find any reasonable play for black then but 27...f4 was a mistake, which led to the loss of Pawn c4 and the loss of game as well.
