  GrahamClayton: 25.♖d7! - blocking the Black Queen from defending the e8 Rook and making a double attack on the f7 Rook.
Aug-14-12  Bezlitosci: 22...♕xc2+ Black is already up the exchange, so he can give the material back. 23.♕xc2 Sxc2 and now after ♖e8 black can play ♖ff8, since the rook is no longer pined by the queen.
