Jul-03-12  blade2012: Nice game, but why not 31. Kh1?
Jul-03-12  shivasuri4: <blade2012>, 31. Kh1 was indeed the best move here. After 31...Rf2, 32. Qg4 Rxb2 33.Qxh3 Qf7, 34. Nf5 (or even Qf5) wins the game for white.

White played 78. Rf7+? Bad move as this leaves White's rook on a
white square instead White must now play 78. Nxg2!=

After 78. Rf7+ Ke2 79. Nxg2 one has the following diagram:

Black can play 79...Qc3+! which will capture the Rook soon and then wins the resulting Queen versus Bishop and Knight endgame...

Game continuation went:
