Heres a game I played recently OTB vs an opponent over 200 pts higher rated than me. I usually am a little less risky but Its one of my best hair on fire wins ever.
Nice job Dan. Way to sac pieces for the king, that's strong, gutsy play.
Good sharp game and way to be confident against a higher rated player!

I think 31...Kf8 does hold for black. for instance. 32. Rh8 Nd2+! eg 33. Kb2 Rxc3 or 33. Qxd2 Qxh8. So, 31...Kf8 32. Qf6+ seems like only way to continue but 32...Rf7 defends. eg. 32...Rf7 33. Qd4 (reinstating the Rh8 threat) ...Qg7 34. Rh8+ Ke7
Other responses are similar, such as 31...Kf8 32. Qd4 Qg7
After looking at it some more I saw
I was planning Qf6+ if Kf8 but the rest was cloudy.
31...Kf8 32. Qf6+ seems like only way to continue but 32...Rf7 defends. 33. Qd4 (reinstating the Rh8 threat) ...Qg7 34. Rh8+ Ke7
35.Qa7+ Ke6 (only move) 36. Re8+ Re7 37.f5+
...Ke5 wins material
37 ...gxf5 38.fxg5+ Kf7 loses to Qxe7# so
Kxf5 39 Qf2+ not winning the rook?? bc Qb2#
.Kd5 maybe saves it for black.. not sure ...
Ke5 wins the rook with check not allowing Qb2#
