Sep-29-12  vinidivici: 35...Rg3 is a mistake. It permits 36.Rg5 the release of the white rook to the side and protect the soon-would-be advanced passed pawn.

Far better is 35...Ra2!. with the medium play (not so hard), it would be a draw.

43.Kb4 44.Kc4 45.Kb3 is a good triangulation. It permits the take of g6 pawn without a victim.

But 43.Rxg6 is enough to win also.

  zydeco: From Bronstein:

12...Re8 is more to the point than ...Qe7.

15...Bd7 is a trap: if 16.e4 Ba4! 17.Qxa4 Qxc3. Still, 16...Re8 was strategically better.

25.Red2 achieves nothing after 25...Rc8.

Moves 16-25 are all extremely accurate: black plays very well after a shaky opening and deserves the draw that he squanders with 35...Rg3.
