  Honza Cervenka: White apparently overestimated his chances on dark squares. Instead of 23.Rae1 it was better to try 23.c4 (of course, the Pawn cannot be taken 23...Qxc4 for 24.Rac1 Qb4 25.f3 Qe7 26.Qh6 Nf6 27.Rc7 Qd8 28.Rb1 Rc8 29.Rd7!! +-) 23...f6 24.Bxf6 Nxf6 25.Qxf6 dxc4 26.Rfd1 Qe7 27.Qc3 with chances for draw.
