If 30. Kd3 then black is lost, right?|

It's admittedly not a very good game, but it was a fun one. I walked away feeling quite lucky.
To address your point, White was loathe to put his king on the d-file with 30...Kd3 because then the skewered queen gets away: Black plays ...Ne5+, then after Bxe5 the other knight comes in Ne5+, then the White K moves to c-file, then ...Qxc6+. The last few moves were played in mutual time trouble, and obviously White didn't see that Kxf3? runs into checkmate.
|Sep-28-09|| ||tivrfoa: Interesting. But white could play 31. Kc3
Then black's bishop and queen are under attack. Black can't take the rook, because the Night and Queen are pinned.
What would be your reply?
30. Kd3 Nfe5+
31. Kc3 Qd5
32. dxe5 ? (Nxe5? 33. Rb6+ Qb7 34. Qxb7#) (Rc8 33. e6+ Ne5 34. Bxe5+ Qxe5+ 35. Kxb3 Rxc6 36. Rxc6 Qd5+ 37. Qc4)

Happy anniversary, CG. May all your leaks be little ones. And nicely played, Daniel -- showing the same unflappable sangfroid you use in dealing with the denizens of this site and their little emergencies.
|Dec-10-10|| ||Marios2722: 22...Qxf4!! 23.gxf4-Rhg8 and black has a winning attack against white king|
|Dec-10-10|| ||kevin86: A nice game. Black's pieces dominate the corridors and biases-the king is dead,long live the king.|
|Dec-10-10|| ||chessgames.com: <Marios2722: 22...Qxf4!! 23.gxf4-Rhg8 and black has a winning attack against white king> That's incredible, we never realized that. An exemplary variation being 22...Qxf4! 23.gxf4 Rg8 (either rook) 24.Rxc6 Ne3+ 25.Kh2 Rg2+ 26.Kh3 Bg4+ 27.Kh4 Nf5#. Well spotted.|
|Dec-10-10|| ||rodchuck: Could not white have gone for a draw with repetition of moves 28 Kf1?|
|Dec-10-10|| ||fm avari viraf: Congrats for celebrating glorious nine years! May you celebrate the Silver, Golden, Diamond, Platinium Anniversaries my dear Mr Daniel Freeman. Your game was a real thriller. I think, both the Kings were hanging on the precipice but atlast you made it finally!|

|Dec-10-10|| ||AylerKupp: Per Stockfish 1.9.1 White has a mate in at most 10 with 30.Kf1 Re1+ 31.Rxe1 Bc4+ 32.Qxc4 Nd2+ 33.Bxd2 Nb6 34.Qa6 Nc4 35.Qb5+ Ka8 36.Ra6+ Qxa6 37.Qxa6+ Kb8 38.Bf4+ Ne5 39.Bxe5#. This includes typical computer engine giveaways to delay the mate as long as possible in case you wonder where all of black’s pieces went.|

|Dec-10-10|| ||Marios2722: white is winning after the 25th move just 30.Kf1 instead of Kxf3 but on the 22...Qxf4 variation there is no hope left some1 suggested 23.Rc4 Qf5 would do since the black King can escape through c7 and d6 so 24.Ra4 or Rb4+ have no meaning|
