33 Re5+!

Feb-05-17  ChessHigherCat: It's always a bit dubious criticizing how the winning side won but 16. Qf3 pinning the f pawn (Qf7#) strikes me as better than the retreat Bh4. Then if 16...Rf8, 17. Bh4 and black can't get rid of the knight by playing f4 and can't chase away the bishops by playing g5 or g6. If h6, to prepare g5, then Bh6 and black is paralyzed.
