Position after Black's 27th move

<We all wondered if Kasparov had sufficient play for his pawn, but now the storm broke ...> 28. Nexg6 fxg6 29. Bxg6 Bf7 <If 29 ... Nf6, White has time for 30. Nf5, followed by Rg3, winning.> 30. Bxh5 Bxh5 <If 30 ... Qxd2, then 31. Rg3+ Bg7 32. Qe5, and White wins.> 31. Rg3+ Kf7 32. Qe4 Qxd2 33. Qf5+ Ke7 34. Re3+ Qxe3 <Not 34 ... Kd6? 35. Re6+, and White wins.> 35. fxe3 Rd1+ 36. Kh2 Rd5 37. Qc8 Kf7 38. g4 Bd6+ 39. Kg2 Bg6 40. Nxg6 Kxg6 <The game was adjourned here, and a draw was agreed without resumption. White gives perpetual check with 41. Qg8+ Kf6 42. Qh8+ Kg6 43. Qg8+ since it is too dangerous for Black to abandon the h-pawn.>
