  GrahamClayton: Black should have resigned after 34.♗d7, but instead drags out the game to a bare king v Queen, 2 bishops and pawn endgame:

I wonder what the record is for the most material against a bare king in a serious game is?

  Honza Cervenka: Solid game by white, who was apparently quite skilled player. Here he demonstrated that hanging Pawns must not be a weakness, if they remain mobile and if they are supported by active and well coordinated pieces. Black blundered with 31...Ne6?? but his position was already difficult due to white Bishop pair and dangerous passed Pawn on the 6th rank.
