  Honza Cervenka: I like 22...0-0-0. Final Rook ending is quite interesting with all its mistakes. Of course, 52...f3! was winning easily, as after trade of "h" for "a" Pawn black wins Pe3 and gets two connected passers, and 53.Rd4 a5 54.Rxe4 Kd3 55.Re8 a4 56.h5 a3 57.h6 Rh2 58.Ra8 a2 59.h7 Rxh7 60.Rxa2 Rh1+ 61.Kf2 Rh2+ black simply wins the Rook. After 52...fxe3? 53.h5 Kc4 white Rook should have stayed on the fifth rank 54.Rf5 or 54.Rg5 and then it is not clear what black can do. Of course, trade of Rook Pawns leads to dead draw.
