18 Qxe4 Qxc4
19 Qxa8?! Qxf1!
20 Kxf1 Ba6+ and
21... Rxa8
black is a pawn up (though it is doubtful whether it can be converted)
Jul-02-22  cehertan: The engine gives white only a small edge after 31..h6 32.Rxa7 Rf7 33.Bxb6. But this is where computer numbers are so misleading to we Monday morning quarterbacks. A GM knows from experience that this grueling, thankless defensive task is likely futile against a top player.
