  Honza Cervenka: If 33.Rd7, then 33...hxg3! 34.h4 Bxe4! 35.hxg5 Bxg2 36.Rd3 Bf2 (Bishop pair is very effective here.) 37.b6 Be4 38.Rb3 g2 39.b7 g1=Q+ 40.Ka2 Ba7

White should have retreated the Knight to e2 with very complex play, for example 33.Ne2 Rxg2 34.Nc3 Rxh2 35.Rd7 h3 36.Rxb7 Be3 37.Rd7 Rg2 38.Rd3 h2 39.Rxe3 h1=Q+ 40.Ka2 Qg1 41.Rd3 Qb6 with an interesting ending Q+R+3P vs R+B+N+4P. Black has some material advantage there and probably he should have won it, but it is not easy task to do over the board. And of course, maybe there are some improvements of this line.

Mar-18-04  drukenknight: or how about: 33. Rd7 Ba8 34. Ne2 Bxe4 35. g3 ?

  Honza Cervenka: <DK> Why 33...Ba8 after 33.Rd7? 33...hxg3 is a forced win for black.
