  Mateo: The end of the game would be a nice puzzle. The last moves are beautiful. 34.Na6! Rb7 35.Ra8+ Rb8 <35...Nb8, Black is paralyzed. 36.Kf3, ready to invade with the King, wins easily.> 36.Nxb8 Rxb8 37.Kf3! <<37...Kb7 38.Rxb8+ Kxb8 39.Ke4 Kc7 40.Kd5 Kd7 41.f5, zugswang coming soon, White wins.>
Sep-21-19  RookLifter: From move 15 the material is equal but white has better developed pieces and controls d-file. Ulf then successively further improves his positional advantage until blacks pieces gets paralyzed in blacks queen side corner.

  Retireborn: Chessbase 2002 puts this game, and indeed this whole tournament, in Sao Paulo 1986.

I assume Rio 1985 is from 365Chess - but does anybody know the truth of the matter? Google useless as usual.

<Mateo> gave the main line. If after 37....Kb7 38.Rxb8+ Kxb8 39.Ke4, Black tries 39....e6 to block the King's entry, 40.f5 is good enough, but elegant is 40.g5!, clearing the king's path to e5 no matter what.
