  wwall: 37...Kh8 looks like the losing move. Perhaps 37...R6c7 38.Rg5 Kh8 39.Nxg6+ fxg6 40.Rxg6 Qf8 may hold or win for Black.

If 39...Qf8 instead of 39...Qh7, then 40.f7! (40.Rg7 also wins) Qxf7 41.Qe5+ Kh7 42.Qxh5 mate.

After 41.f8=Q, if 41...Qxf8, then 42.Qe5+ Kh7 43.Qxh5+ Qh6 44.Qxh6 mate. If 41...Rxf8, then 42.Rxg7 Kxg7 43.Qxc6

<37...Kh8 looks like the losing move.> Agreed.

<Perhaps 37...R6c7 38.Rg5 Kh8 39.Nxg6+> I think White would instead play <39. Qe5> in this line, preparing Nxh5. But Black may try to counterattack (e.g. ...Rc2 at some moment) and I'm not sure of the result of the long line.

  beatgiant: One possibility is 37...R6c7 38. Rg5 Kh8 39. Qe5 Rc2 40. Qe4 R2c7 41. Qe5, repeating moves. It looks pretty risky for either side to try for a win there.

If Black varies from the above with 40...Rxb2? 41. Nxg6+.

If White varies from the above with 40. Nxh5?! Rxb2, White's attack doesn't look quite fast enough to balance the substantial material loss.
