  wwall: If White was playing for a draw, then, instead of 31.Rxd4, White can play 31.Re6+ Rf6 32.Qg4+ Kf7 33.Rxf6+ gxf6 34.Qh5+ and it should be perpetual check.

42.Kg1? allows 32...Qc5+ and the exchange of queens and a won endgame for Black. Perhaps best is 42.Kh3 Qh5+ 43.Kg3 and avoid queen exchanges for a possible draw.
