Black to Move

I thought I was gonna lose this. My last move - g4 was speculative. I didn't know if I can withstand the attack that will surely follow. e.g. 29. g4 Rxf4 30. Bxf4 Bxf4 31. Qxh7 Bxd3+ 32. Kg2

And here, it turned out that the move I was so afraid of - Rd2+ was not possible as the file was blocked by the bishop.. duh! I'll probably hate myself if I lost this game..

Anyway, so it was unclear to me and I was so afraid of the move.. Yet, I still played the g4 as he just had so little time - I thought to tempt him and make him think.. hehe.. relying on time flag is perhaps not such a novel idea, but in this case at least it worked.. >.<

100 more points and I am back..
