  Chessical: This was main line Dragon theory at the start of the 20th century.

<35. a4> may have been a safer method to secure a draw, e.g.:

<35...Rcd7> 36.axb5 axb5 37. Kf1 Kf6 38. Re2 Kf5 39. g3 Kg4 40. c4 R2d3

<41. Rb2> bxc4 42. bxc4 Kf3 43. Ke1 Re3+ 44. Kf1 Rdd3 45. Rf2+ Ke4 46. c5 Rc3=

This would prevent Black in the actual game being able to play:

<38... Rb2> 39. Kf1 Kf6 40. Re2 Rb3 41. Rc4 Ra3 42. Rxb4 Rxc6 with pressure.
