  Honza Cervenka: White could save the day with 43.Rc6! Rxb5 44.Rxe6.

On the other side black could achieve much more after 19...Bxd2 20.Qxd2 dxc4 21.Qe3 c3, for example 22.Qxa7 c2 23.Qe3 Rd4 24.Qe5 Qd8 25.Qe3 Qd6 26.b4 Rd8 with huge advantage of black.

After 14.exd4? (14.Bxd4 was better) black could win a Pawn with advantage by 14...Qc7.
