Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-02-20  RookLifter: First I assumed that black resigned due to 31. ..fxg6. 32 Qd7 with threat of mate 33. Qxg7. But then black could defend with 33. ..Rh7. So I guess there must be some other obvious mate theme...? Any suggestions?

Jan-03-20  RookLifter: Ok, thnx for the enlightment! So just a 15 moves variation then, I obviously need to improve my analytical skills... Or else invest in the option to press the engine button.
Jan-04-20  areknames: <So just a 15 moves variation> It's not. After 33.Rf7 Qf8 34.Rxf8+ Rxf8 White has Q+B vs R+R and the win is just a matter of basic technique, no need for engine analysis.
