  Honza Cervenka: This game is quite good example of importance of development and piece mobility. If you look at the position after move 25.e5 you can see that despite the fact that Queens are off and that black is two Pawns up, he faces serious troubles due to his undeveloped Qs and immobile Knight on h5. 25...Rd8 seems to be a mistake but what to play instead of that? Maybe 25...f6 with intention Rf7 but then 26.Rd1 cramps black position further. After 25...Rd8 26.Ng5 black has no satisfactory defence of Pf7 as 26...Rf8 loses immediately for 27.Be2 g6 [27...h6 28.Ne4 f5 (28...g6 29.Bxh5 gxh5 30.Rg1+ Kh8 31.Nd6 ) 29.Nd6 f4+ 30.Ke4 f3 32.Bxf3 Nf4 33.Nxc8 Raxc8 34.Rxc8 Rxc8 35.Kxf4 ] 28. Bxh5 gxh5 29.Rg1.
