  Stonehenge: What about 20...Re4+, is it winning?
Sep-22-17  Retireborn: <Stonehenge> The Informator annotator (Bozic) gives 20...Re4+ 21.Be2 [21.Kd1 Qb2 wins] Bb5 22.Rxc3+ Kb8 23.Bc5 Qa5 24.Bb4 Rxb4! which he assesses as won for Black.

Taking this a little further; 25.axb4 Qxa1+ 26.Kd2 Bxe2 27.Qxf7 Qd1+ 28.Ke3 d4+ 29.Ke4 dxc3 30.Qxe8+ Kc7 31.Qe7+ Qd7 32.Qc5+ [32.Qg5 Qh7+!] Qc6+ 33.Qxc6+ Kxc6 34.Kd4 e5+! 35.Kxc3 Kd5.

Some awkward moments in there, but the win does seem to be clear, as the bishop will cope with the K-side pawns.

Bozic also gives 42...Rxa5 43.Bc4 Rc5! 44.Re7+ Kf4 45.Re8 Rc8! as a drawing variation.

  Stonehenge: Thanks for that, I figured the white bishop had to stay on the a1-h8 diagonal.
