  Honza Cervenka: 47...Rf4 is a pretty final move.

  tpstar: Notice the two Skewers:

1) After 30 ... Rb4 then 31. Kc3?/c3? Rxc4+! 32. Kxc4 Ba6+ & 33 ... Bxe2.

2) After 47 ... Rf4! then 48. Rxf4 Qg1+ & 49 ... Qxg8. On other Rook moves, 48 ... Qf2+ 49. Kh3 Rh4#.

  Honza Cervenka: 29.Qd4?? was a grave mistake leading to loss. Instead of that 29.g4! would have been much better. After that 29...Re1 allows 30.Qb2 with unpleasant threat Qb5#, 29...h5 can be followed with 30.Be6 hxg4 31.c4 Rb4 32.Bd7+ Kb6 33.Qd4+ Ka5 34.Qxa7+ Ba6 35.Bb5 Qg5+ 36.f4 Qc5+ 37.Qxc5 dxc5 38.Bxa6 Kxa6 39.f5 Rxc4 40.Rf2 Rd4 41.f6 Rd8 42.Kf4 and white wins.
