(A) 66. ... hxg5 loses quickly: 67. Qxg5+ Kf8 (forced) 68. f6 Rg1 (forced) 69. Qe5 Kg8 70. Qe8+ Kh7 71. Qxf7+ Kh6 72. Qe8 .

(B) 66. ... h5 does not save Black either: 67. Qh2! (much better than h4 since now White still controls e5) 67. ... Rf1 68. Qe5+ Kh7 (68. ... Kg8? 69. g6! ) 69. Qf6 Kg8 70. g6 fxg6 71. Qxg6+

(C) 66. ... Rh1 loses the rook: 67. Qe5+ Kg8 (67. ... Kh7 is mate in 7 and 67. ... Kf8 is mate in 9) 68. g6 fxg6 (forced) 69. Qd5+

And all the other moves allow White to simply win the h-pawn.
