  plang: Yates realizes that if black is allowed to play 29..h6 then there will be no way to break through so he sacrifices a pawn with 29 h6. 39 Kg1 with the idea of reversing the q-r battery is clever. Black has no play except to shuffle his pieces. Good example of an attack in a closed position.
