  Phony Benoni: White's king has fun in this one. Note the neat 29.Kg3, avoiding an inconvenient check later as well as getting ready for the ensuing pawn ending.

  fredthebear: 30.Bd7 came as a surprise, but it converts nicely into the end game with White having the better placed king.

  OhioChessFan: Don't have time to look at this, but in blitz I might have tried 31...Kb6 and gone after White's d Pawn with the Rook.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: 31...Kb6 doesn't work. The White Rook penetrates and it's all over. One line might be

31..Kb6 32. Bxb5 Kxb5 33. Rxc7 Rh3 34. Rxf7 Rxd3 35. Rxh7 Kc6 36. Rg7 and it's clearly over.
