  Honza Cervenka: I am not sure but maybe 35.a4 can keep white alive.

  wwall: Instead of 35.b4, 35.a4 b6 36.b4 h5 37.g3 g4 or 37...h4 looks like a draw.

Instead of 36.axb4?, I think 36.cxb4 draws after 36...b5 (36...b6? 37.a4 c5+ 38.bxc5 bxc5+ 39.Kxc5 Kxe5 40.a5 wins for White) 37.g4 and the position is locked up for a draw.
