Peter Svidler and Daniil Dubov told about their interesting game

Svidler - Dubov was one of the most interesting duels of Round 4 of the Men's Superfinal. The rivals competed in Sicilian defence, in which Dubov has lost against Evgeny Alekseev recently in the last round of the Premier League. After the game the opponents shared their impressions on the game at the press conference. You can listen to their commentary at full in the audio player [in Russian]. Here we offer you the most interesting parts of the players analyses. Mostly Peter Svidler was talking and he actually evaluated his play critically. 

Peter SVIDLER - Daniil DUBOV
Superfinal, Round 4

Sicilian defence
1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 Nc6 6.Bg5 e6 7.Qd2 a6 8.0-0-0 Bd7 9.f4 b5 10.Bxf6 gxf6 11.Kb1 Qb6 12.Nxc6 Bxc6 13.f5 b4 14.Ne2 e5 15.Ng3 h5 16.h4 Qc5 17.Qe2 Ke7 18.Nxh5 Bb5 19.Qg4 Bh6 20.Rd5

20...Qc7 The fact that this move was better than the one Dubov played against Alekseev 20...Qe3, was found out by him immediately after the game. 
21.Qd1 Bc6 22.Bc4 Rac8 
"Even if you won't find anything better than Alekseev - Dubov, than at least you won't waste 40 minutes on the moves which already took place - so when you eventually face a novelty you will have enough time to react." 
Svidler: one should be excluded from the guild for this move. How can you let a5-a4 with two tempos for black and don't fix the bishop by the help of 23.b3 - this a mystery for me.   
here I was already planning to play Rd3 and Bxf7. I decided to make those move quickly without hesitating. 
24.Rd3 In the case of 24.Nxf6, black plays 24...a4

Svidler: It's most likely that 25.Bxf7 losses. But I also didn't like 25.Bd5: 25...Bxd5 26.exd5 Qc4 или 26.Rxd5 b3.
Svidler: Probably the direct refutation to white's standing - 25...b3 26.axb3 Kxf7 27.Rxd6 Bg7 28.Nxg7 (in the case of 28.Qg4 Rxh5 29.Qxh5+ Kg8 white's position is hopeless) 28...axb3 29.Qd3 bxc2+ 30.Kc1 Rhd8.
Svidler: Those watching the game with the computer told me that better was to move to d5. But still I was concerned with 26...Bxd5
27.Rxd5 b3. And if black plays 26...b3, then 27.axb3 axb3 28.Bxb3 Ra8, and here I confess that I saw 29.Rd4!! If you don't see it you can resign immediately. After this move the position stays unclear.
Svidler: Let's say that I underestimated this move.
27.Bxd5 Bxd3 28.cxd3

Svidler: 28...Qc1+ concerned me more. 
Dubov: It seemed to me that he is going to play: 29.Qxc1 Rxc1+ 30.Rxc1 Bxc1 31.Nxf6 Kxf6 32.Kxc1 Kxf5.

Svidler: Here white could have tried 33.a3, or 33.Kd2. I chose the second move, in order to trap the rook on h4 (33...Rxh4), after I wanted to attack "а" pawn and force black to exchange another pair of pawns. And still there would be three against two and at the same time the bishop controls g2-pawn... With some chances to hold. 

29.Bc4 Qxc4 30.dxc4 Rxd1+ 31.Rxd1 Rxc4 32.g4

Svidler: Of course black should play 32...b3. Maybe white is not losing, but that would surely be a big human luck 33.axb3 axb3 34.Nxf6 Kxf6. 

Svidler: The problem is that I couldn’t play 35.Rd6+, as long as after 35...Kg7 36.g5 Rxh4 37.gxh6+ Rxh6 and the pawn endgame would be probably hopeless. 
Chess-News: However, white is not forced to move to the pawn endgame: 38.Rd7+! Kf6 39.Kc1, according to the preliminary analysis black can't strengthen its position. For instance, 39...Rh3 40.Kd2 Kxf5 41.Rf7+ Ke4 42.Rd7 Rf3 43.Rd8 Kf4 44.Rf8+ Kg3 45.Re8. Or 39...Kxf5 40.Rd3 Rb6 41.Kd2 e4 42.Rh3 Kg4 43.Rh1.  

Svidler: ...that's why white should play 35.g5+ Bxg5 36.hxg5+ Kxg5 37.Rd3 Rb4.
Chess-News: In this case, it seems that white has less chances than in the case of 35.Rd6+.

33.Rd7+ Kf8 34.Rd8+ Ke7 35.Rd7+ Kf8 36.Rd8+ Ke7 37.Rd7+ Kf8 Ничья.
