  Honza Cervenka: 29.Rd3 allowing black Rook to invade the second line was a mistake. But the position of white was already quite precarious, and after 29.Ra2 Bxb4 30.Nxc8 Rxc8 31.Rd7 Re7 black is better. Instead of 26.Qxe4 it was better to play 26.Nd7 forcing thus 26...Bxd7 (26...Rf7 or 26...Re8 is bad for 27.Bh5) 27.Rxd7 Qe5 28.Rf1 with complex and dynamic position, where white is definitely not worse.
