  Honza Cervenka: Alas that black missed quiet 36...Kg6! threatening Bf6. After 37.Qe7 or 37.Qd8 black forces quick mate playing 37...Qe2 38.Qe8+ Kh6 39.Bd2+ (What else? Of course, 39.Rh1 Nf2+ 40.Kg2 Ne4+ 41.Kh3 Ng5+ 42.Kh4 Qg4# is not better option.) 39...Qxd2+ 40.Qxe6+ Bf6 41.Rh1 Nf2+ 42.Kg2 Ne4+ 43.Kh3 Ng5+ 44.Kh4 Qxd4+ 45.g4 Qf2#, and 37.Re1 Qxc3 38.Rxe6+ Bf6 39.Rxf6+ Nxf6 gives black extra piece and easily won game.
