Jun-19-05  azaris: What happens after 16...Rxf7 17.Bxe6 Rxc3?
Jun-19-05  lopium: That ain't this line I guess. Maybe 16...Rxf7, then 17.Qxe6 Qe8, 18.Qxe7, if 18...Rxc4, then Qxb7, winning. Or if they exchange Queens, the same problem appear, with the rook menacing the b7 Bishop.
Aug-09-06  Helios727: 19. Qxb7 would not work because of 19... Rxb7
Aug-09-06  Helios727: Chessmaster gives the ending as:
