  tpstar: 42. Qf3 wins a piece due to Black's weak back rank combined with the hanging Ng6.

The sequence 22. Be3 Qa5 23. Rb1 Qd8 is interesting. Why did Black defend the Pa6 and then let it go? Maybe Black expected 24. Nxa6 instead of the positional 24. Nd3, but the follow-up 25. Rb7 was very strong.

I like the Zwischenzug 33. Nxd6 going for the material imbalance, as White's advanced passed Pawns look unstoppable. 37. Rxf6?? is tempting except for 37 ... Rb1+ and Black wins.
