  Honza Cervenka: By the way, this is very nice game. White gives a pretty mate in 3: 28.Be5+ Kc5 29.Rc1+ Bc4 30.b4#.

Instead of 18.Rad1 white could have played also 18.Ng5 Ndf8 19.h4 Qb4 (19...Nxh4?? 20.Rxe5+ ) 20.Bf7+ Kd7 21.h5 Nh4 22.Re3 Qf4 23.Rg3 Nh7 24.Ne6 Qb4 25.Bxe5 with decisive attack of white.
