  OhioChessFan: 47. d7+? Pushing the Pawn into the attack area of Black's King was too committal. But Black subsequently missed the saving 50. a4. I think 47. f7+ also wins.

  NM JRousselle: Black was doing well, but he did not understand the position. 30... Qe4 keeps control of the e file, prevents the exchange of rooks & maintains the pressure on the White king.

I have told my students MANY TIMES that a piece is often worth more than 3 (or 4) pawns.
