  tpstar: Brilliant attack, but I wonder if Black could hold on with 32 ... Nd5 33. Qf3 (33. Qd8? Rd6) f6 or even 32 ... Nef5!? 33. gxf5 Nxf5 with R&N versus Q.

  GrahamClayton: 30.♗c6!!! Fabulous move, placing the White Bishop en prise to 4 different Black pieces, none of which can capture due to 31.♕f7#.

  Honza Cervenka: 29.Nd7+ Bxd7 30.Bc6 was also possible and probably even more precise than the text move 29.Rd7.
