    I'm pretty sure the end was a draw, but around move 26 I think I may have missed a better attack. Whaddya think?

    30...Bg6! complicates the exchange nicely, and with correct play leaves black with a more coordinated position, I think here you had the ability to reverse some of your problems. You also would have given your an opponent more oppurtunity to fail. And that would probably give you a less complicated endgame.

    Ya, why couldn't black have played 30. ... Rxf5 at if I did play 30. Bg6?

    I'd go for 25.Rxf5, although admittedly the main goal is to win the c-pawn rather than just attack.
