  profK: 31...b5 is a blunder. Black misses that 32. Rc6 forces the win of a pawn. The later rook sac just sets up a mating net. Not one of CHODA's greatest games.

  wwall: After 33.Rxd6+ Black cannot play 33.cxd6 because of 34.Rxc8. But 33...Ke5?? loses. Perhaps better is 33...Kf7 since 34.Rdc6 Nxc6 35.Rxc6 Rd7 favors Black.

After 34.Rdc6! (threatening 35.f4#) 34...Nxc6 35.Rxc6 threatens 36.f4#.

After 36.gxf4+, White wins with 36...Kf5 37.Bh3+ Ke4 38.Bxc8
