  patzer2: The move 13...Rxf2! is featured as the solution to number 4826 in Laszlo Polgar's Book "5334 Problems, Combinations and Games." It is classified under the theme "Sacrifice on f2/f7."

If 14. Kxf2, then 14...Qe3#. If 14. Rxf2, then 14...Qe1+ Rf1 dxc3+ .

Dec-02-09  DoubleCheck: <<patzer2> If 14. Rxf2, then 14...Qe1+ Rf1 dxc3+>

Black is not winning;

14. Rxf2 Qe1+?
15. Rf1 dxc3+??
16. d4! Bxd4+
17. Kh1

- 16. d4! Forced moves can also be good ones

Blacks first rank is vunerable and queen en prise.
