<to keep his winning chances intact, White had to play with extreme accuracy. After he missed the
critical moment <<<(33 Bd5! would have caused Black serious problems)>>>, Anand achieved the ideal kingside pawn-structure with 33...g6 and
his following play was a model of purposeful
defence. Notable moments in the final phase
were the timely 34...Nxb3! and Black’s vigorous
use of his king (39...Ke5, 47...Ke5!) to create
active counterplay. An important component
is also the knowledge and successful implementation
of endgame theory (such as the position
mentioned in the note to move 37), but at this
level, it goes almost without saying.>

Does anyone have a <RYBKA EVAL> of White's options for move 33?

Thanks
