  tpstar: Black got a lot of play for the exchange sacrifice but White defended well and eventually used the open lines against Black's King.

29. Bxg6! is very nice - 29 ... hxg6 30. Rxg6 threatens 31. Rh6+, and if 30 ... Qh7 31. f5 works, or 31. Qxe6 (31 ... Nxf4? 32. Qf6+).

33. Qxf6+! is a cute Remove the Guard tactic.
