Instead of 31.Nd7+ 31.Qe7 wins.
No TB's for me, just your basic Rook and Knight mating patern.
31..Qxe7 (anything else just sheds a load of material.) 32.Rxe7

I guess the engine you're using doesn't have an endgame tablebase.

Because he was abusive and keep on sending me abusive messages.
Originally posted by ChessPraxisBecause I reported him. The longer I prolong, the higher the chance Russ took action. Unfortunately, Russ is so busy that even now he has not read my message. According to my sent mail, it is still unread. Anyway, the abused started way before it was a clear draw. He was offering draw and writing unwanted messages every move.

It makes little sense to prolong a game with an abusive opponent. Chess players should be frank and blunt and to the point, but you don't deserve to be abused. So opt out, it's better for your soul my friend.
