  Honza Cervenka: I would like to know what was Winawer planning to play after 36...Qc1. It looks at first glance that white is lost after that but maybe the thing is not so clear. For example, after 36...Qc1 37.g5 Qxc2+ 38.Bd2 (threatening 39.g6+ and 40.Re8#) 38...Kg8 (38...hxg5?? 39.Nxg5+ Kg8 40.Re8#) 39.f6 gxf6 <[39...Qxd3 40.g6 gxf6 (40...Qe2+ 41.Kg3 Kf8 42.f7 Qb5 43.Bf4 Qd7 44.Nf6 and white wins.) 41...gxf6 42.Nxf6+ Kh8 (42...Kg7? 43.Nh5+ Kf8 44.Bxh6+ Kg8 45.Re8#) 43.Re8+ Kg7 44.Nh5+ Kxg6 45.Nf4+ Kf7 46.Nxd3 Kxe8 47.Bxh6 ]> 40.Re8+ Kf7 41.gxh6! d5 (41...Kxe8 42.h7 Qxd3 43.h8=Q etc.) 42.h7 dxe4 43.h8=Q Qxd2+ 44.Kg3 black has hardly anything better than perpetual check. Of course, this line perhaps can be improved for black somewhere but still white's counterplay is amazingly dangerous.

But even if Winawer saw all of that or something similar I don't think that his idea with 33.Be1 Qg5 34.Nd2?! Nf4+ 35.Rxf4 Qxf4 36.Ne4 was good. Simple 33.c4 would have given him solid and maybe even decisive advantage, for example 33...Nf6 34.Rg3 a6 35.g5 hxg5 36.Bxg5 Qh5 37.Bxf6 gxf6 38.Re4 c5 39.Reg4 and white wins.
