  Honza Cervenka: Lovely game. I like Beliavsky's idea to march with King to the Queenside. After 32....Qa8 (not allowing Qc6) white could have played 33.Qf5 Nf2 34.Rd7 Re1+ (34...f6 35.Qd5+ ; 34...Qh1+ 35.Kc2 Qc6+ 36.Kb1 Re1+ 37.Ka2 Qc4+ 38.b3 Re2+ 39.Bd2 ) 35.Kd2 Rd1+ 36.Ke2 Qe8+ 37.Re7!! (a lovely move) 37...Qxe7+ 38.Be5 Rc1 (what else?) 39.Qc8+ (It is better than 39.c8=Q+ Rxc8 40.Qxc8+ Qf8 41.Qxf8+ Kxf8 42.Kxf2 which wins too.) 39...Qf8 40.Qxf8+ Kxf8 41.Bc3 and white will have a new Queen.
Jan-22-06  patzer2: Short creates an isolated pawn and wins a pawn, but Beliavsky iso becomes an advanced passed pawn which decides the game (following the novel King march described by Honza Cervenka above).
