Oct-21-07  srinivas6195: 30. queen takes b6 wins even that too forcefully
May-27-13  Infohunter: <srinivas6195> If 31.Qxb6+ the win is not at all clear, as after 31...Kc8 32.Qxc7+ is infeasible, whereas after 31...Ka8 32.Ra1 is met with 31...Ra4. The text move (31.Ra1) brooks no argument.
Sep-01-19  sneaky pete: 28... Kc8 was a mistake, he should have exchanged Rooks at c1. However, black may not have been lost at that point. Instead of 29... Qc2 he could have tried 29... Ra4

Now 30.Bxc7+ .. looks nasty, but I don't think it's deadly (for black).

Both players were in time trouble (first control at move 30, I guess).
