  wwall: Instead of 17...Kh8, 17...Kg7 may be better. If 17...Kg7 18.f5 Kxh6 should be OK for Black.

Instead of 19.Qh4, perhaps better is 19.hxg6 hxg6 20.Bd2 and 21.Rac1.

After 21.Nxg6, instead of 21...Rxg8 (the losing move), perhaps best is 21...Kxg8 22.Rf4 a5.

After 22.Rf4, White threatens 23.Qxh7+ Kxh7 24.Rh4#.

After 24.Raf1, White threatens 25.Qh6 and 26.Rh4 and 27.Qxh7#.

After 25,Qg5, White threatens 26.Bxg6 fxg6 27.Qh6+ Kg8 28.Qxg6+ Kh8 29.Qxh5+ Kg8 30.Rg4+ Ng7 31.Rxg7#.
