melv: 10.Re8
   May-08-09 F Handke vs H Hernandez Carmenates, 2003 (replies)
melv: Can't figure out what black was thinking with 22.c5. It appears white has several ways to win after this move.Rxe6 or simply Bb5.
   Oct-28-08 Petrosian vs Spassky, 1966 (replies)
melv: Why not 25.Kf8 Instead of Rf7?
   Oct-22-08 Alekhine vs Euwe, 1937 (replies)

melv: The irony is that black has four passed pawns and still he loses.

melv: I could see up to 24.Rxb8, and figured that was an even exchange. Didn't look deep enough.
