And note in the above diagram of the final position of the variation that the Black a1-knight is not even <TRAPPED> in the corner as 29 ♔d2-c3 is met by 29 d5-d4+!, freeing the knight.

The <MISSED WIN> that you highlighted above is today's Puzzle Of The Day.

Chess sure would be easier if you had someone standing over shoulder telling you "You now have a forced win in this position! Find it!". ;-)
