Maybe to combine rook+queen to win attacking.
In that position the poor white king position can be more decisive than
a simple pawn.

To say a bit mo
Bareev played to make sure that White could not trade off queens (e.g.
51...Qxg4 52.Qe4+ Qxe4 53.Rxe4). After such a trade the ending may be
lost for White, but White would still have counter changes due to his
advanced passed c-pawn. The way Black played the position White was
given no chances for counterplay. In fact within a few moves White is
forced to give up a rook or give up a queen for a rook just to avoid
immediate checkmate.
