  alligator: On move 36 I thought White could have increased pressure with 36.Rc1. Shredder uses the idea, but with 36. Rc4 exploiting Black's vulnerable King and weak pawns... 36Rc4 (37 Rxc5 & Qxe6+ & Nf7+) Rf8 37 Ne4 Qf5 38.Qc7 Nxe4 4.Rxe4 Qc5+ 5.Qxc5 bxc5 6.Rxe6 etc.   But does White have a won endgame?
Dec-09-11  The Rocket: <Alliugator> shredder is a weak tactican. Houdini finds 34 rxd5! winning.. becase after takes theres rxh6!! a move I actually saw myself and its over.
