Interesting moment at the end. Suppose Black, instead of resigning, tries <31...Qc8>:

What do you play as White?

  AylerKupp: Both 32.Qb7 and 32.Qc6 look pretty. Too bad that both 32...Qxb7+ and 32...Qxc6+ involve check. So maybe just the prosaic 32.Qxe5 followed by advancing white's q-side pawn majority?
