I'm not really proud of the game as I was slightly behind in the opening while I was playing the Nimzo-Indian which I know relatively well. I slowly got uphill with a little help from my opponent (no clear mistake, but many inaccuracies).
The position reached on move 28 (hence the title) is really amazing, it reminds me of a game from Alekhine with a pin given by a battery of two rooks.
The white pieces are incapable to move there !
It's not zugzwang until EVERY move loses. You have plenty of pawn moves.
After 30... Qxf5+ what's wrong with 31. Qf3 (instead of 31. Rf3) ?
Indeed, it seems way better... Both my opponent and I overloked this, apparently !
Maybe my opponent actually thought I was more likely to miss a tactical line than to misevaluate or poorly play a pawn endgame. But as for me, I missed it (otherwise I would have added it to the analysis).
Black trades everything and still wins the pawn endgame with some care. But for sure it is better than losing a rook.
Grandmasters should play more with amateurs not themselves
