  wwall: Instead of 32...Ref7, perhaps 32...Qxg2 33.Rxf6 Qxf1+! 34.Rxf1 Rxf1+ 35.Kd2 Ref7 and Black holds for a draw.

The losing move is 33...Rg7, allowing 34.Rxf6 and easily winning. Black has a little bit more resistance with 33...Kg8 34.Qxh6 Rg7, but White wins with 35.Rh5 Qe4 (with a mate threat with Qe1; 35...Kf7 36.Rxe5) 36.Qh8+ Kf7 37.Rxf6 Kxf6 38.Qxf8+ Kg6 39.Qe8+ Kf6 40.Rh6

Browne gets mated after 35...Qb5 (36.Rxh6+ Kg8 37.Qd8+ Kf7 38 Rf6 mate), but he is lost anyway.
