I knew the game Sulypa-Zajarnyi, Puchko mem Alushta, which was exactly the same up to here. But I could not remember any more moves, so I had to play by myself.

20.Qa6+ Kd7 21.Qa4+ Kc8 22.Bg5 Rhe8 23.Rge1
[ 23.Rde1 f6 24.Qa6+ Kb8 25.Re3 Rd6 26.Qb5+ This was the end of game Sulypa-Zajarnyi, 1-0. So Ivanchuck's trainer Sulypa help me to win this game.]

Of course I am much better here, but I made very bad move:

[ 34...Qh6! 35.Qxg4 Nf4 I did not find this clever move ( 35...Bc8 36.Bd7 I saw this and I stopped thinking about this line) 36.Qf5+ I saw this check and thought this cannot be good. But later I found 36...Kg7 37.Qxe5+ Kf8 38.Qe7+ Kg8-+ and Black is winning!]

35.Qc4 c5 36.Qd3
This is a very bad position for me because my king is exposed. I cannot move it to g7 because of the knight fork on f5.

36...Rhh8 37.Bd7 Qh6 38.Qd6+ Kg5 39.Kf1 cxb4 40.cxb4 Ra8 41.Rea3 b5 42.Rxa8 Bxa8 43.Ra6 Qg7 44.Qd1 Rh4 45.Rxa8 Qh6 46.Kg1 Nf4 47.Rg8+ Kf6 48.Bxg4 Ng6 49.Qd8+ 1-0

[ 11.Bxc6+!? Maybe this is a better move, but I don't know.]

[ 13...Nxd5 14.Nxd5 0-0? 15.Nd4+- Very nice, yes?]

14.Nxe5 Bxd5?
[ 14...Nxd5! 15.Nc6 Nb6 I did not see this move. But also Maiorov did not see it too. Now the position is unclear.]

15.Nxd5 Qxd5 16.Qxc7
But now the position is very good for me.

16...Bd6 17.Qc6+ Qxc6 18.Nxc6 0-0 19.Rd1 Bc5 20.Be3 Bxe3 21.fxe3 Rfe8 22.Nxb4 Rxe3 23.Re1 Rg3 24.Re5 h6 25.Kh2 Rg6 26.Rd1 a5 27.Nd3 Nd7 28.Re7 Rd6 29.Rf1 f6 30.Rfe1 Kf8 31.R7e6 Rd5 32.Rc6 a4 33.a3 Rb8 34.Nb4 Rd2 35.Ra6 Ne5 36.Re4 h5 37.Rxa4 Re8 38.Nd3 Nxd3 39.Rxe8+ Kxe8 40.cxd3 Rxb2 41.Ra7 Kf8 42.a4 h4 43.a5 Kg8 44.a6 Rb6 45.Ra8+ Kh7 46.a7 Ra6 47.d4 Kg6 48.d5 f5 49.d6 1-0

[ It is crazy that a 2542 GM will play like this against me. I could have continued: 19.Qd2 Re8 20.Qf2 Bf8 21.Qd2= but I wanted more...]

Now I have a nice position.

[ 30.Nb4 +/=]

[ 30...Rxc5 31.Rxd8 It was a terrible mistake. I thought he cannot take the knight because otherwise I can take his rook. I forgot that the bishop on h4 was guarding d8...] 0-1
