  Everett: Black is likely not worse after activating his rooks with 33..Re2 and an eventual ..R8c2

As Black, however, I would not be comfortable with those knights hoping around my king, especially with the lack of mobility, and a rook lurking to deliver mate.

The position on the board after 32.Rxf1 is analyzed by Esben Lund in the excellent book Rook vs Two Pieces. One of many take-aways from this position is that White wants to keep his rook on, as it helps the two knights be more effective.
