  Honza Cervenka: After 33...h5! with idea Bh6 and intrusion of black Queen white apparently did not get what's going on. It was better to play 34.Ke1 but white position would be difficult anyway, for example: 34.Ke1 f4! 35.Bxf4 Qf5! 36.Kd1 h4! 37.Qe4 Qxh3 38.gxh4 Qxh4 39.a3 Qh1+ 40.Ke2 Qg2+ 41.Kd3 Qb2 42.Qe6 Qb1+ 43.Ke2 Qh1 44.Qe4 a5 45.Be3 Be5 46.Bf2 Bf6 47.Be1 Kg7 48.a4 Qg2+ 49.Kd1 g5 50.Qd3 Qb2 51.Qc2 Qa1+ 52.Qc1 c2+ 53.Kxc2 Qa2+ 54.Kd3 Qxb3+ 55.Bc3 Kf7 56.Qc2 Qa3 57.Kd2 Bxc3+ 58.Qxc3 Qxa4 with decisive advantage of black. Neat finish by MMB.
