AN could have played on for a while. His lifetime score v JRC was 0-5 with 6 draws, so he probably wasn't brimming with confidence.

Apr-14-14  RookFile: I wonder how Capa would have played this? Something like 17....Kg7 18. Kg2 Qe7 19. Rh1 Rab8 20. g4 Bxc3 !? 21. bxc3 f6? It looks like he needs to be careful.
Jul-19-14  mbeatini: Me being me I would have played hxg6 and tried to follow up with Kg2 and Rh1. That said, I'm a class E player at best. What the (expletive deleted) do I know?
