By move 31, black was looking at losing its queen. White played 31.Bxg6+, then follows black takes bishop with 31…Qxg6, then a force check by white with the rook, 32.Rh8+ and the King is forced to take the rook at h8, 32…Kxh8, 33.Qxg6! leaving the white queen to take the defenceless black queen at g6. Brilliant play by Abdullah!

Black was not able to press its advantage of having 5 pawns against white’s three early enough. White used speed to wind down black’s position by mobilising its pieces effectively.
