  fredthebear: Very nice work by Black to deflect the defenders away from the Rb1, previously twice defended. The Black queen snatches the loose rook up and then 33...Qe4+ decoys the remaining White rook into an absolute pin, which the Black rook piles on 34...Rf2 to force White's resignation.

  sachistu: The final mistake was 30.Bxc4? (no doubt influenced by time trouble). Instead 30.Rbf1! Qe4+ 31.Bg2 Rxf1 32.Bxf1 Qf4 33.Be2! and White is winning, as pointed out in BCM, 1932.

Another remarkable move would have been 27.Qb8!! (instead of 27.Rg1) for example: 27.Qb8 Rxb8? 28.Rxb8+ Kg7 29.Rg1 and White should win or 27...Qg7 28.Rg1 Qf6 29.Qg3! Nxe3 30.Rb8! and again White is winning.

A somewhat similar theme is 23.Qb8+!! Rxb8 24.Rxb8+ Kg7 25.gxf6 Kxf6 26.Nx4, which was pointed out by Treybal in the Czech magazine Ceskoslovensky Sach.
