Jan-23-19  norami: A fun game to watch. Check out the position after 33 moves where White has sacrificed a rook in order to get rid of all the king side pawns.
Jan-24-19  vonKrolock: I was watching, and thought that after 32.h6 could follow 32...♕xg2 33.hxg7+ ♔xg6 34.g8=♕ ♗g7 etc...

Now, according to SF, there's a mate in six here: <35.Rh6+ Kf5 36.Qf7+ Bf6 37.Qxf6+ Ke4 38.Qf4+ Kd5 39.Rxd6+ Kc5 40.b4#>

32.h6 was a brilliant move!

Since NOBODY speaks Russian, I'll translate:
