  luzhin: My silicon friend recommends 34...Qc5+ 35.Kh1 f5 and if 36.Rd8+ Be8! with the point that after 37.Rxe8+ Kf7 White's rook and king are simultaneously en prise. Actually 34...Bd7 is not a complete disaster, but 35...Kh8?? is. After 35...Kh7 White would not have the killer forking check on c8 after rooks are exchanged, and the Q-ending a pawn up is no easy win.
Jun-16-10  Raspje: In fact white wins after 32.Be6+ Kg7 33.Rd3!! with the double threat 34.Nf5+ and 34.Rh3 (Rybka 3)

"Later in the game I was winning but 27. fxg6 was a bad mistake. Instead I should have played 27. Bd5! Bok might then have been able to save the position but 35.. Kh8 was the losing move. He should have opted for 35.. Kh7".
