Even in a boring endgame, still be sure not to walk into mating nets!
the line I was looking at was 29...Nf5 30.g3 Nh6, but upon further inspection black has the pretty 31.h4+ Kh5 32.Nxf6#
a nice win. the mating pattern looks quite unusual.
29...Nf5 30.g3! and Black still cannot prevent h2-h4 with checkmate in one or two more moves.
The checkmate can be prevented by 29...Nf5 giving up a knight, but of course the endgame is then easily won for white.
