  Honza Cervenka: Very interesting R+N ending full of little tactical tricks. Of course, 34...Rxa5?? would be blunder for 35.Rxd6 . And white cannot play 44.Kc4 for 44...b5#! Instead of 69.Rxb2 white could have tried also 69.Rg1!? h5! 70.b7! Rxb7 71.Rxg2 but after the only 71...Re7!!, which cuts white King from KS Pawns, black is still theoretically won.
