  Honza Cervenka: Exciting game. In early middle-game white's successful defense gave him clear advantage, which could have been already decisive after 30.Nxg3 Rxe5 31.Qc8+ Kh7 32.Rab1 Qa5 33.Ne4 etc. But a mistake 31.Qe4? (31.Rab1 Qxh4+ 32.Kg1 Rg5 33.Qd7 Rgxe5 34.Rxb7 holds the advantage for white) allowed black's comeback into the game, and in the move 42 black even missed a beautiful winning combination: 42...Nxe3+!! 43.Qxe3 Rxc6 44.Rxc6 Qh1+ 45.Qg1 Rxf4+ 46.Nf3 Rxf3+ 47.gxf3 Qxf3+ 48.Ke1 Qxc6 . In following tactical melee, where threats of mate were in the air on both sides but which could have resulted in equal position with correct play black once again missed nice tactical opportunity 51...f5+! 52.Kxf5 Rxe5+!! 53.fxe5! (white is still threatening with mate, for example 53...g1=Q? 54.Rxa7+ Kh6 55.Rh8#) 53...Rg5+! 54.Ke6 (or 54.Kxg5 g1=Q+ =) 54...Rg6+ 55.Kf5 (55.Ke7 already loses) 55...Rg5+ etc.
