  Honza Cervenka: 27.Rb2 was a mistake. After 27...bxa5 if white retakes by Pawn, he falls in huge troubles after 28.bxa5 e5! 29.Qc3 (Or 29.dxe6 e.p. Nxe6 30.Qc3 Nf4! 31.gxf4 Rxb2 32.Qxb2 Rxe3 etc.) 29...Qc5 (diagram)

The pin of Knight e3 forces white to give up control of b-file with overwhelming advantage of black, for example 30.Rf2 Rb4 31.Bg2 Reb8 (threatening Rb3) 32.Ra3 Nh5 33.g4 Nf4 34.Bf1 Ba4 and the game is over.
