  Honza Cervenka: 33.Qe4+ is a sad mistake. After 33.d4! black has to do anything with threatening mate on g7 which gives white time to consolidate, for example 33.d4 Qg2 34.Qxe6 Rb2 (34...Bxd4+ 35.Rxd4! Qxh1 36.Qf5+ Kg8! 37.Qd5+ Kh7! =) 35.Qe4+ g6 36.Rhg1 Re2+ (36...Qf2+ 37.Kf4 Bd2+ 38.Kg4 Rb5 39.Qe7+ and white has draw in hand and can even try to play on win.) 37.Kd3 Rxe4 38.Rxg2 Rxd4+ 39.Kc2 with advantage of white.

In move 22 white could try also 22.Ng5+!? hxg5 (22...Kg8 23.g3 ) 23.g3 Qh6 24.Qe4+ and 25.Qxa8, although after 25...dxc3 26.bxc3 Qf6 or 26.Qe8 b4 black has excellent counter-play for material.
