  typhoonsub: There is no doubt that the risky 36. Qd6! was deeply analyzed by Keres:36...Qxd6 37.exd6 Kf8 (forced)38.c5!! bxc5 39.Ne5 and white is wining in all lines.For example: 39...Nf6 40.g4 g5 41.Bb5 (leaving black totally paralyzed)41...Ba8 (41...c4 42.Bxc4 Nd5 43.Bb5 Nc3 44.d7 Ke7 45. Nxf7)42.h4 h6 43.hxg5 hxg5 44.f4 gxf4 45.g5 Nh7 46.d7 Ke7 47.Nxf7

No better was 39...f6 40.Nd7+ Ke8 41.Nxc5 42...Bc6 43.Nxe6(threatening 44.g4) Bd7(43...f5 44. Bxh5!) 44.Nc7+ Kd8 45.Bxh5 gxh5 46.Nd5.
