  Honza Cervenka: 43.Qa4 was a sad mistake in long and tense contest. After 43.c5!? Qd7 44.Kd1 Ke7 45.Kc1 Rgh8 46.b4 (threatening 47.Bg4) 46...Qd8 47.Kb2 white has small advantage in space but the game would have finished probably as a draw. 45.Qd1 was also a mistake played in hope that black will continue 45...Ng3+. Of course, 45.Kd1 Ng3+ 46.Rh7 Qg4+ 47.Kc1 Nxh1 48.Rxh1 Qe4 49.Re1 Rg1!! 50.Rxg1 Qxe3+ etc. leaves no chance to save the game for white.
