I assume you mean 30.Bxh7.

I think it is about stopping black from getting his bishop on the a2-g8 diagonal and then having black promote a pawn. An example of this idea (I'm not saying this is best play, but it is what I came up with off the top of my head):

31...Bd5 32.g4 Kd7 33.f5 Kc6 34.g5 Kxc5 35.f6 gxf6 36.g6 Kc4 37.g7 Kb3 38.g8=Q Bxg8 39.Bxg8 Kxa3 40.h4 b4 and black queens with check before white does and then queens again after preventing white from queening.

On the other hand I think white has too many pawns if white instead plays (in my above line) 32. Bd3 b4 33.Bb5 b3 34.Bxa4 b2 35.Bc2 Ba2 36.Kf1 b1=Q 37.Bxb1 Bxb1 38.Ke2

I wouldn't be at all surprised if I missed something better for black though.

Dec-29-09  happyjuggler0: Oops, yes it is move 31, not 30. My hallucination!
Oct-16-10  DanielBryant: <happyjuggler0> Thanks; that makes sense.
