  Stonehenge: 30. Rc1? is really a pity. The simple 30. h3 was good enough.
Jul-28-15  Abdooss: This is the game that Chessgame mentioned earlier on Duchamp's profile = < In 1925 he had his chances to become champion of France. He started well in the tournament, but blundered in a winning position against the eventual victor Robert Crepeaux, and then, perhaps deflated, lost to Casier. Duchamp ended up sixth. >

...or <30. Rd1>, which works just as fabolous and - as bonus - is more direct since it adds pressure along d-file.

Even suboptimal queen moves like <30. Qd3/Qb1/Qe2> prevent throwing the win away.

Jun-05-20  rwbean: 20. ♕b3 is +15
30. ♖d1 is +10 ... 12 moves have a positive score with ♖d1 and h3 at the top, 30. ♖c1 is 20th in the ranked list


32... ♔f7 is mate in 27
35... ♘d1+ is mate in 3
36... ♘d3+ is mate in 15
