  An Englishman: Good Evening: Bizarre game, of the sort that makes me wonder what the players were smoking and why aren't they sharing.

The ending is particularly interesting. Starting on move 28, Bonelli sacrifices two pawns for the sake of saddling Black with four pawn islands and then picking off weak pawns later. This strategy is not without some risk, and the 2R & 3P vs. 2R & 3P section looks particularly hard to calculate for both sides. In fact, this looks like one of those endgames where one can learn more from the mistakes.
