The beginning of a second long combination by White - of course if Black is permitted . . . P-B5 without hindrance White has no chance against the connected passed pawns; 26 P-B4 is not possible because of 26 . . . Q-Q5 + picking up the rook.

'An inaccuracy. It was better to play immediately 26 N-B3 Q-Q5 27 B-N2 B-B3 28 R-R2! with great advantage to White. Possibly my opponent did not see 28 R-R2! and therefore chose a different order of moves. Now I succeeded in evading this extremely unpleasant variation."
