  plang: 14 Be3 was new; 14 Bb2 had been played previously. Perhaps 19..g6 would have been less provocative. 23..f5 was suggested as more solid. 32..Kh7 33 Qf4 would have been fatal for Black. White should have spent a tempo defending against Black's counterplay with 34 h3 or 34 Rc3. White's last chance to win was 36 Rc2. 38 Rxe2..Rxc1+ 39 Qxc1..Qxe2 40 hxg..Qxg4 41 Qh6..Qh5+ would not have been winning for White.
