  Honza Cervenka: 29....Ra8 was a blunder, after 29....Ra6 white is clearly better but black can still resist.

White also missed two chances to exploit the pin of piece on c6, which could have won the game faster. The first opportunity was 26.Bh6! with idea 26...Be7 27.Rdc1 Ra6 28.Nd4 (immediate 26.Rdc1 was possible too but it would be not so effective here as after 26.Bh6 Be7, though it should be sufficient for win too) or 26...Bg7 27.Bxc6 Bxc6 28.Rd6 or 26...Ra6 27.Bxf8 Rxf8 28.Qh6 . The second chance white had in the next move after 26...Rca8? (26...Ra6 was still better), when simple 27.Rdc1 was winning on the spot.
