  wwall: Notes in Chess Life says that Black has a winning position after 28...Rd2. White played 29.Kg3? and lost easy enough, but perhaps White can play 29.a3 Rxb2 30.Rg3 or 29.b3 Rxa2 30.Rg3 and hold. After the game move 29.Kg3 Rxb2 30.f4, why not just 30...Rxa2 since 31.f5 exf5 32.exf5 b5 looks like an easy win for Black.

After 29.Kg3 Rxb2 30.f4 Rb5, now White can play 31.Kh4 (better than his 31.h3? move) and if 31...h5, then 32.Rg2 looks like a draw. After 30.f4 Rb5 31.Kh4 Ra5 (instead of 31...h5) 32.Rg2 Rxa2 33.Rxa2 Kxg7 34.Rxa7 Rb8 35.Ra4 b5 36.Rb4 still looks like a tough ending for Black to win.
