  al wazir: The continuation might be 29...Be6 30. Qxe4 (30. Qb8+ Rc8) Bxf5 31. Qa8+ Rc8 32. Qxa7 Be4 33. Qa5, winning the b-♙. If instead 33...Rb8, then 34. Qc5+ Ke8 35. Qe5+, winning the ♗; if 33...Rxf2, then 34. Qxb4+ Ke8 35. Bb5+ Bc6 36. Bxc6+ Rxc6 37. Qe4+ Kd7 38. Qxh7, and black is running awfully short of ♙s.

  Mateo: <al wazir> Your variation wins fore White, of course. But there is nothing wrong with 29...Be6 30.Qb8+ Rc8, since White takes the b pawn with check after 31.Qxb4+. In this variation, White wins too.
