Feb-25-05  chess man: If Rxd8 then black responds with Rb1+ Kf2 then Rb2+ and white must lose his queen with Rxg2 and if white captures black's rook with his king then black replies with Bxd8 remaining a rook ahead.

  nasmichael: Nice eye. Intermediate strength players could do well by looking at the end position and working it through.
Sep-15-07  wolfmaster: Attractive tactics.
Sep-11-09  King.Arthur.Brazil: After 15...Qd7 white has better position.
But Smyslov find ways to change it. at 26: black has a column 'a" adn weak P (a2) to attack. His K protected by 2B. That's why SIMAGIN tried to find something in dark water: 28.f5!? Then sac the exchange (Rxg6) trying mate combination. But I prefer 33.Kg2 instead of Bb3: remove the K from g1-a7 pin and treats Bd6-g3. if black replyed Be5, then 34.Be3. White has the attack. Bb3(?) also gives the winning combination for black.
