Oct-02-05  diegoami: white tries to catch black in a mate web with 32. exf5 . dropping the Bd3, but after 32... Qxd3 33. f6 Kf8 black can protect the 8th rank

Better was 32. h6! , threathening Rb8# 32... Kf8 33. Qh5 Re7 34. Qxf5 with several threaths : Qf6, Rb8+, Qc8+, Bxa6, e5

Black should be able to defend though
