  Honza Cervenka: 29...Qxh2+ 30.Kf1 gives nothing to black, for example 30...Rg6 31.Ke2 Rg8 32.e6 Qh5 33.R1c6 Qe5 34.Rxa7 Nc8 35.Rd7 Re8 36.Rcc7 Nd6 37.Rxh7+ Kg8 38.Rhd7 etc. with decisive advantage of white. 27...Rxe5 would have been better, for example 28.Nd4 Qf8 29.Rxa7 Re7 30.Ra6 Nd7 31.Rd6 Qa8 32.Nf5 Rf7 33.Nh6 Re7 34.Nf5 (34.Nxg4 h5 35.Nf6 Nxf6 36.Rxf6 Qxa2 or 35.Nh6 Qf8 36.a4 Nf6 37.Nf5 Re5 is clearly in black's favour) 34...Rf7 holds equal game.

  Honza Cervenka: Of course, not 51.Rxg6?? for 51...Rh1+ 52.Kxh1 stalemate.
