Bubo bubo: <Removal of the guard> with 27...Rxc3 is so easy for a Wednesday that it is almost difficult again - I wasted some time searching for some hidden snag.

Bubo bubo: 41.Rxe8+ Qxe8 42.e7+ Qf7 43.dxe5 and mate next move, but the simple 41.dxe5 also works (41...Qb7+ 42.Kg1 Qxc8 43.e7+ and mate next move), and so does the modest 41.Qxg6+ Kf8 42.Rxe8+ Qxe8 43.Qxe8+ Kxe8 44.dxe5.
