29...Re4!
Very well played. I would not liked to have been playing Michaelis when he had an attack.
30. Rxe4 Nxe4. Suddenly White looks on the ropes.
31. Qd4 Rc8! The threat is ...Qd1+ Kg2 ...Rc1, exploiting the pin on the ♗.
32. Qe3.

32...Nxd2?? Fie. He must have been tired.
33. Qxe6+ Kf8
34. Qxc8+...
That is the end of the game. Black was annoyed and played on far too long.
32...Qd1+ would have won.
