  Honza Cervenka: Wow! What a game by Bogo! 42.Rc1 was a little tactical slip, white should have played 42.Be2 or 42 Kg2 at first to eliminate possible Queen fork on d4 after 42...Bxc6 43.bxc6 Rxc6 44.Qxc6 Qxd4+ but it did not change the result as white managed to keep some advantage and won the game in the end.

In final position white threatens with Bh5+ and next e8=Q which forces black to give up his Rook for Knight and Pawn with hopeless ending.

Bogo sacrificed the exchange here with 24 Rxd5. Was this correct? White could have retained a clear advantage with 24 Rd4 fxe5 25 Rh4. After 24 Rxd5 the game continued 24..cxd5 25 Nd4 and now Bohatirchuk missed his best chance to resist with 25..Rxe5! 26 Rxe5 Qxe5 27 Nc6 Qe4! Now White (fortunately?) has 28 Bc2 Qc4 29 Nxd8 Bxc2 30 Ne6 which should be winning. Presumably Bogo saw all this!?
