34.Rh5-h4 Qf6 35.Qh5 Be5 36.Qh7+ Kf8 37.Nxe5 Rxe5 38.Qh8+ Qxh8 39.Rxh8# because the strategic N/f5 guards e7 and g7.

34...Rf6? deprived the queen of its only escape. On move 27 the bishop should not have abandoned its defensive post at g7.

Nov-08-11  sevenseaman: Very nice finish. Zoltan goes as if he is riding a 'Victoria'.
