  Gilmoy: Looks right. Given the choice of two pawns, prefer to <not> capture the overextended one. It's not going anywhere, and you can overwhelm it later.

42.Rxf3 would leave Black's K with an easier defense of e5, and it exposes f2 to frontal pressure.

A promising K-side attack relaxes into a pawn-picking race, like an uncovered soda losing its fizz. Black was always one move behind. Do you really want that g-pawn?
