May-31-13  phil6875: It was very nice attack by Dolmatov and the win was deserved but White made a serious error with 56. Qc5 and Black can force a draw with 56...Rxb7.

That is probably why other sources such as Glenn Flear's "Practical Endgame Play", position 11.15, discussed on pages 271-273, list the actual move as 56. Qc4+. A correction has been submitted.
