  Honza Cervenka: 19.Rf3 was not correct decision. After 19.Bc2 black's plus Pawn plays no role and white is okay. 20.g4 was played with idea that black cannot take 20...fxg4 for 21.Bxh7+ and 22.Qxd4 but it compromises white's position badly. 20.Rb1!? b5 21.Rg3+ Kh8 22.Qh5 looks more reasonable and if 22...Qxf4, then 23.Rh3 h6 24.Rf1 Qd2 (24...Qd6? 25.Qg5 ) 25.Qh4 Rg8 (25...f6 26.Rf4! with strong attack) 26.Qf6+ Kh7 27.Qxf7+ etc. with the draw in hands of white ar least.

21.Rh3?? was a blunder. 22.Bxh7+ Kg7 23.Rh5 Qxf4 24.Qxd5 Be6 25.Qxb7 Rad8 gives nothing to white.
