24. Rxc8 trying to win the bishop,
... Qb6+
25. Kh1 Rxc8! threatening Rc1+

29. Qg7+ Ke7
30. Qxh7
Aug-27-06  kinghunt72: According to my analyzer, there really is nothing wrong with it.
Aug-27-06  thorndeux: I think the queen is out of play on h7 and it takes too long to get it out of the way and promote the pawn. White's King is not safe enough for such an operation. The black rooks and queen penetrate to the 7th and 8th rank. Maybe something like 30...♖c1
31.♖dd1 (31.♖xc1 ♖xc1+ 32.♔h2 ♕g1+ 33.♔h3 ♗f1 might lead into trouble for White) 31...♖xd1
32.♖xd1 ♖c2
33.♕g7 ♕f2
34.♖g1 ♗f1

I'm sure there's better play for both sides. Just an idea...
