  Honza Cervenka: 23.Qxc3 fails for 23....Rd1+. Bogo's attempt to sac the piece for a Pawn storm was interesting but insufficient.
Mar-05-08  Knight13: Didn't work at all. Losing that piece = jumping into a volcanoe.
Oct-02-10  soothsayer8: interesting that 53...Rxg7+ loses to 54. Kf6 Rg5 55. Rc1+ Bc4 56. e7 It takes me a while to see those sorts of things. Goes to show that the obvious move is not always a good one.
Sep-04-11  galdur: Instead of 54. Rd7?? , g8Q wins.

  Honza Cervenka: <galdur: Instead of 54. Rd7?? , g8Q wins.> Probably not. What would you suggest after simple 54.g8Q Rxg8? I see nothing.

On the other hand I don't know how would have black won this after 51.R1xb2. For example, 51...Bd3 52.Kd7 Rxg6 53.Rxc6 Rg7+ 54.e7 Rxe7+ 55.Kxe7 Kxc6 leads only to drawish R+B vs R ending.
