May-21-07  wittmann: yermolinsky must be kicking himself, he had at least a draw. after 33. Bg1 black should have checked on c1. if white wants to avoid the perpetual he must play 34. kg2 rc2+ 35. bf2 e3. but that looks rather lost after 36. bxa6 rxf2+ 37. kg1 bg3 38. a7 e2. also: 35. kh1 does not help white winning after 35...e3 36. bxa6 e2 37. bf2 be3 38. bg3 bf4 39. bf2 be3.
