  fredthebear: 20.Ne6!? is a bit of a trick. Obviously, the knight threatens to capture a major piece straight away. If Black thinks it's a gimme, he'll lose his queen. Thus the obvious 20...fxNe6 21.dxe6 B moves 22.e7+ is a forcing discovery followed by 23.exQd8=Q.

Thus, Black wisely choses 20...BxNe6 instead.

Jan-06-17  ChessHigherCat: I'm not saying 20...fxNe6 is better, but if 21. dxe6 Bxe6, 22. Rxe6 it's the same position as in the game line. You're right, of course, that if black tries to save the bishop (placing Church over State) he loses the Q with the old dirty trick e7+

Ha! Funny.

What a positional grinder. After 28...h6, black gives up a pawn and his position is totally hopeless. 28...b5 would have not made much of a difference. After 29.Qb7, white wins a pawn anyway (but perhaps doing this and giving up the a-6 pawn, black would have had a tiny, tiny, tiny bit more activity than in the game). Notice that 29...Ra8 to defend the a-pawn does not work because of 30.Re7 and if the queen defends the g7 pawn, 31.Rxg7 anyway.
