  tpstar: 29. Ng4! was a very nice Discovery to win material (29 ... fxg4 30. Bxe4; 29 ... Rxe2? 30. Nh6#), then the Knight exploited the weak dark squares on the Kingside (31. Rxe8! Qxe8? 32. Nf6+). Note 32 ... Rxd5!? 33. Nf6+ Kf7 34. cxd5 keeps the extra material for now (34 ... Qxf6? 35. Rxf8+) but Black gets some back with 34 ... Nd7. In this line, White would probably play 35. Qe3 defending the Re8 plus the Pf4, then get Queens off after 35 ... Qxf6 (35 ... Nxf6? 36. Qe7#) 36. Qe6+ Qxe6 37. Rxe6 with the better ending.
