Sep-04-03  MichaelJHuman: 36...Rd3 is a blunder? Black seemed to be in control

  Honza Cervenka: Black is a piece down. By the way, if the gamescore is correct, then white could win it one move earlier playing 32.b4 instead of 32.Kf1. But maybe the gamescore is not correct and 32.b4 Bxe3 33.fxe3 f5 34.Kf1 Kd5 etc. was played in the game.
Sep-04-03  MichaelJHuman: I suppose 32.... Nf7 does not help much?

  Honza Cervenka: After 32...Nf7 (if the recorded order of moves is correct) or 32...Nb5 black position seems to be okay.

  whiteshark: Hübner's only loss in the Rio de Janeiro Interzonal Tournament 1979, where he shared 1st place jointly with Portisch and Petrosjan. Smejkal finished 10th jointly with Shamkovich.

  whiteshark: <Honza Cervenka ...<if the recorded order of moves is correct>>

I guess you are right as <32. b4!> is the only winning move in the position.
