Feb-23-08  clocked: <Knight13> what do you mean? 32.Rxf5 is the correct move

32.Rxf5 Rf38 33.Rg5+ Kf8 34.Qg7+ Ke7 35.e6

Feb-23-08  sneaky pete: Really? White could have forced a draw, but he played to win (he was no sissy, remember?).

Mr Bird says:
<34.Rf1 .. > Useless. Qg7+ .. and e6 .. is the line of play to win. 34.Qg7+ Ke7 35.e6 Qc6 (best) 36.Rf1 Rf8 37.Qf6+ Ke8 38.Rg8 ..

and wins.

Feb-23-08  Knight13: <sneaky pete> <clocked> Thanks for the annotations. I thought Bird played Rxf5?? as a blunder 'cause he could've gotten a draw but lost, and I was looking at how White should approach to win but couldn't see it, and concluded it as "IDIOT."
