  GrahamClayton: 31. h3 allows del Turco to win a pawn after the combination starting with 31...♘xg2. 31.g3 stopping the sacrifice and supporting f4 was a better move.

You are correct - 31. g3 ♖exe5 wins a piece, so Tarrasch maybe decided to take his chance in a rook ending.

Jul-27-17  newzild: White could have avoided immediate loss of the pawn by 31. Rff2 or Rdf2, although Black can play for ...g5.
