  Honza Cervenka: After 52. Kxe2 Rh2+ 53. Kd3 Rxc2 54. Kxc2 Bxc1 55. Kxc1 Ke4 the ending is easily won for black.

11.Bxh7 looks quite dubious. Black avoided 11...g6!? apparently due to 12.Ne4 but after 12...Bg7 13.Nd6+ Kf8 14.Ng5 Qc7 15.0-0 Nf5 16.Ndxf7 Rxh7 black is better. Of course, 11...Rc8 was fine too and black could reach big advantage playing 15...d5! 16.cxd5 Qd8 instead of weaker 15...Nac6. White should have played rather 11.b4 Nac6 12.a3 Bb7 13.0-0 Qc7 14.Bb2 etc. with equal chances.

But despite of that slip in the 15th move black gradually outplayed white. Very good game by Polugaevsky.
