  wwall: 30.Bf8!, threatening 31.Qg7 mate, was strong. This is better than 30. Ne7+ Rxe7 31.Qxe7 Qc1+ 32.Kh2 Qh6+ 33.Qh4 (otherwise perpetual check) Qxh4+ 35.gxh4, which looks like a draw.

After 30.Bf8, if 30...Kxf8, then 31.Qh8 mate. If 30...Rxf8, then 31.Ne7 mate. If 30...Qc1+ 31.Kh2 and now Black can't play 31...Qh6+ without losing his queen after 32.Bxh6.

A jocular note by Abrahams after 20....BxR (on g3)

"At that time of my life, ( He was 39) I still regarded the loss of the exchange as an advantage." .
