Pawns, who needs pawns

I'm currently in Melbourne, helping present a FIDE Arbiters Seminar at the Box Hill Chess Club. Alongside the seminar is the Oceania Seniors Championship (as reported yesterday). I've been able to watch a bit of the action, although not much, as the seminar is pretty full on from 9:30 am to 6pm each day.
However I did catch the final stages of the game between Bruce Gloistein and Paul Dunn. I'd previously played Bruce in the 2011 Oceania Zonal, and found him quite a tough opponent. In the game below, Dunn seemed to have a complete disdain for his queen side pawns, and indeed gifted 2 of them to his opponent. But to prove that the kingside is still where it is at, a capture on h2 to open the  h file, and a bishop sitting on g3, signalled trouble for Gloistein. Possibly not understanding the idea behind Rf6, Gloistein retreated his bishop to c1, but once the Black queen moved to f7 it was pretty much all over.
