  Honza Cervenka: <nimh: 33.Rxf7! could have put up tougher resistance.>

33.Rxg7 (I guess this is what you have meant) 33...hxg4 34.Rxh7+ Kxh7 35.Rxc3 gxf3 36.Rxc7+ Kg6 was a bit better but still hopeless due to many weak Pawns of white.

Btw, white's decisive mistake (besides of putting his Rook in offside) was 28.Re1 combined with 29.g3 which allowed black to drive away the white Bishop from covering e5 and to prepare Re5 with tempo due to possibility to attack the Rook on e1.

  nimh: Yes, "g" instead of "f", my bad. It was so long ago that I've now forgotten why I ever bothered to mention that move.

For this egregious error, you shall be flayed! Or is it 'glayed'?
