  offramp: I don't think 30....♕f6 is the lemon, because all of the other suggested moves also lose

30...♕g7 31.♕b1 b6 32.♕b5 ♘b8 33.♕c4 Anand;
30...♗e8 31.♕h8+ ♔e7 32.♗a2 Anand(32.♗g2) ;
30...♘d8 31.♗xf7 ♕g7 32.♕xg7+ ♔xg7 33.♗a2 Anand

The bad move was 27...g5 [27...g6 is better: 28.h5 g5 29.♘d5 ♕e6 30.♕h7 ♘e7]
