30 Ng6+ ...Kg4
31 Qxh6 ...Kf5 (...Bf5 Nf6#, anything other non king move Qh6 ...Kf5 Qf4# )
Unfortunately, time trouble had set in, and I began to panic.
30.Nef6 intending Ng5 is the fastest way to win (Qc1+ 31.Rxc1 and 32.Ng5 mate).
30.Ng5+ is also a great move. It only takes one more move to mate than the line above (Kg4 31.Qxh6 with mate on move 33 ... eg 31. ... Kf5 32.Qh4 followed by 33.Qf4 mate).
