  Honza Cervenka: Vera tried to improve Lasker's play from Capablanca vs Lasker, 1921, and this attempt was quite hopeful but later she lost the thread [for example 15...cxd4 like in Levitina vs Chiburdanidze, 1984, 18...Rfd8 with idea 19.Rxa7 (or 19.cxd4 a5 20.Bb5 Nf6 21.Rc4 Rd6 22.0-0 Rbd8 23.Rfd1 Nd5) 19...Rbc8 20.exd4 Nf8 21.Bg2 Ne6 22.0-0 in both lines with more than sufficient compensation for a Pawn, or 19...Ng4 20.Be2 Nf6 21.Rxa7 Ra8 22.Rxa8 Rxa8 23.a3 dxe3 24.fxe3 Re8 25.Kf2 Ne4+ 26.Kg2 Nd6 27.Rd1 (27.Kf3 Nf5 28.e4 Nh4+ =) 27...Rxe3 28.Kf2 Re6 etc. were better options of black] and white managed to consolidate his position with material advantage and to win.
