  Everett: It seems that that running of the c-pawn was a calculated risk that paid off for Seirawan. <32.Bf8> seems better, but the position remains complicated to play with the clock ticking. With a rook on the 7th, a passed pawn, a N and Q in the attack, and Black with an ineffective rook on h8, there are some chances for White in the position.
Jan-02-18  Howard: Interesting enough, the Informant claims that 28.c5?? was a blunder and that Black could have won by replying 28...Bf8.
