  Peligroso Patzer: The position in this game after 32. ... Rxc3 is puzzle #481 in The Ultimate Chess Puzzle Book, by Emms. The winning solution given in the book is 33. Qd7! I do not question that this would have won for White (Emms), but I think that 33. Qf6! (threatening 34. Rd8+, leading to mate or the win of at least a rook against any defense I have analyzed) is also a forced win. Does anyone see a defense for Black after 33. Qf6(!)?
May-10-05  aw1988: Maybe Rf8?
May-10-05  Shams: <aw1988> no, then 34.Qxc3 ;)

<Peligroso Patzer> how do you meet 33...Rxf3?

May-10-05  aw1988: Lol, oops.
