white has the initiative but no great advantage, why did GM Barus resign?

Mar-17-12  spawn2: I also asked the same question to GM Eugene, if I remember correctly, GM Barus knew that he has the initiative and a break on the kingside which GM Barus cannot prevent. His plan was to swing his queen to the king side and work on the dark squares. Also, GM Barus was short on time: )

  Penguincw: Makes sense. While black is tied up on the queenside, it makes sense to exploit where black is weakest, the kingside.
