  Honza Cervenka: The result 0-1 is evidently incorrect here. White has clearly won position. The main direct threat is 45.Be6 with next advance of b-Pawn. If black tries to prevent it by 44...Rb6, then white can take Ph7 or even play 45.Be6 anyway as 45...Rxb5? 46.Kf6 leads to immediate mate (46...Rb8 47.Rxh7 and 48.Rh8#). Of course, 44...Rb6 45.Be6 Bd3 46.Kf6 Bxb5 47.Rxh7 Rxe6+ 48.Kxe6 Bd3 49.Kf6 Ke8 50.Re7+ Kd8 (50...Kf8 51.Rd7 ) 51.Re5 with next 52.Rxf5 wins easily.
