  fredthebear: In the final position shown, play might have continued 32.QxBc4 Rb2+ 33.Ke3 Nxg2+. White has an unpleasant choice to make as his Bf1 is pinned. See diagram:

  fredthebear: If 32.BxBc4, then 32...Rb2+ also puts Black on top w/mating variations available. White would have to give up his queen to delay the pending defeat.

  fredthebear: White could try to remove the knight outpost first, then grab the loose bishop, but to no avail: 32.BxNf4 gxBf4 33.QxBc4 Rb2+ 34.Ke1 Qh4+ 35.g3 Qxg3+ 36.Kd1 Qxf3+ 37.Kc1 Qf2 with mate to follow. See diagram with mate to follow:
