  Penguincw: After 28...Qc6, taking the perpetual was practically forced. If 29.Qh3, then 29...b5, and white starts to become tied up.

Black doesn't really have a way to avoid the perpetual. If something like 30...Qh6, then perhaps 31.Ne2, and white starts to break free. Probably still a draw though...
