Black played 33...Bd1! (another possibility is 33...Rc2 34.Qxb3 Qxe5) 34.Nxf7+ Kg8 35.Rxe8+ Nxe8 36.Qe7? Re2 and White resigned.

However, White had a saving move e.g. 36.Qe4! and if ...Re2 then 37.Nh6+! Kh8 38.Nf7+ draws or if 37...gxh6 38.Qc4+ and White should not lose i.e. ...Kf8 39.Rxd1 Re1 40.Re1 Qxe1 41.Qf1.
