3rd HD Bank Cup 2013 Rd3-GM Berkes(HUN)

GM Berkes ground out a subtle positional win on the black side of the Caro-Kann by seemingly doing nothing. Eventually black’s attention turned to the d4 square and eventually Berkes won this square and then the game.

Black has been fighting for the d4 outpost for most of the game, which white has just secured d4 with 29.Rd3. What do you recommend for black now?
