  Honza Cervenka: Alas! White missed a nice possibility to save the game in the final position. He probably saw that 37.Bg6+(?) Ke7 38.Qxc7+ Ke6 is hopeless and so resigned. But he could have played 37.e6+! Rxe6 38.g6+! Ke7 (38...Rxg6?? 39.Bxg6+ ) 39.Qxc7+ Kf6 40.Qf4+ Ke7 41.Qc7+ Ke8 42.Qc8+ etc. with perpetual check.

28.Ng4 was too optimistic. After 28.Rf3 white should have won easily.
