Dec-23-15  TheBish: 36...Qxc7?? is obviously a blunder that most likely was not played. But 36...Rxc7! makes perfect sense, as White will be mated after capturing the rook (37. Bxc7 Qf1# or 37. Qxc7 Qf1+ 38. Bg1 Qf3#).

  fredthebear: <TheBish> Agreed. The Black rook just took the c7-pawn with immunity, else it's checkmate on a light square.

In the final position shown, the corollary 37...Rxc2 does not quite work because of the Bg1 interposing. 37...Rc3 will suffice, or the simplifying 37...Qc1+ and remove the c2-pawn next.
