  Honza Cervenka: This line with white's Queenside castling leads usually to very interesting play. This game was definitely very entertaining.

  Honza Cervenka: <perfidious> Yes, it is the famous trapped Queen on h7 game after surprising 22...Rh8!!

Btw, 46.d5 should be good enough to draw here. If 46...Rxa5, then 47.d6 f3 48.d7 Ra8 49.Kd5 (49.Re8?? f2 ) 49...Kf7 50.Kd6 g4 51.Re7 Kg6 (51...Kf8 52.Re4) 52.Re8! Ra2! 53.Re6+! (of course, 53.d8=Q loses as after Rd2+ and Rxd8 white Rook is unable to stop black Pawns f+g) 53...Kg7 (of course, black King cannot move to the fifth rank for Re5+ with next promotion of d-Pawn) 54.Re7+ etc.
