  Honza Cervenka: Black sould not have resigned here. After 37...Kh7 (37...Kxg8?? 38.Qd8+ with mate) 38.Nf6+ Kg7 39.Ne4+ Kh7 it is not clear what white can do to win this position. For example, 40.Nc3? is refuted by stunning 40...Qc2!! and 40.Qf6 (or 40.Qe7) 40...Qd1+ 41.Rxd1 exd1=Q+ 42.Kf2 Qc2 43.Kg3 Qd3+ 44.Kh4 g5+ 45.Nxg5+ hxg5+ 46.Qxg5 Qg6 leads nowhere.
