Jun-22-05  LuckyBlunder: Can't see mate here :S ... white's DS bishop on d4 is very powerful, after <Ra1+>, can anyone tell me what's next ? - I'm just a novice here, I see that white's king is pretty exposed, but white's bishop on d4 is pretty strong, defending g1 and with a possible discovered attack on a1 - Did Afek resign because he was a bishop down or because there is a line that forces mate ? - I think I am missing something .... :D Thanks in advance, cheers ! :D -
Jun-22-05  MrSifter: After 38.Kc2, 38...Ra2+ wins since after 39.Kd3 follows 39...Bb5+ and a white's a full rook up.

If 38.Ke2, 38...Bb5 right away and the rook has no square to go to. For example, 39. Re4 Rg2+ and mates.

Think you mean 38. Kd2 but 38... Bb5 loses to 39.Rc7+

The right continuation is:
38.Kd2 Ra2+ 39.Rc2 Rxc2+ 40.Kxc2 Bxf3 and white loses another exchange and is a full rook behind. For example 41.Rd2 Be1 42.Rd3 Be4
