Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-11-16  zydeco: 28....Qxa4 29.bxa4 Rd7 looks pretty safe. Maybe Furman was worried about 30.Nb3 and 31.a5.

34....Nh4 is probably the critical mistake. 34....Kd6 should draw.

Still, it's a surprise how easily Petrosian wins the rook endgame. If 37....Re7 38.Rd8+ Kc6 39.Rf8 Re6 40.Rf7

It does not matter but 55.g8=Q is check, and so 55...a2 is not possible. Of course, white wins easily.
