  Honza Cervenka: 34...d5 was a grievous mistake. 34...Rf7 was necessary.

Kieseritsky's idea to drop a piece for destroying white's pawn center was not bad but he should have sacrificed a Knight instead of Bishop. For example, 9...Nxe5 10.dxe5 Bxe5 11.Ba3 d6 12.Qd3 h3 13.Nf3 Re8 14.0-0 (14.Nxe5? Rxe5+ 15.Kf1 Ng4 16.Nd2 Ne3+ 17.Kg1 Rg5 18.g3 Bf5 ) 14...Ng4 15.Nbd2 Bf6 16.Rfe1 Ne3 17.Bb3 Bf5

Jul-04-09  heuristic: mo' better moves:

28...Qc1+ 29.Rf1 Qxc6 30.Rxe4 fxe4 31.Re1

34...Rf7 35.g4 fxg3 36.Rxf7 Qxf7 37.Qxf7+
