Maybe a nice 'white plays and win' problem?
Sure would like to see some analysis on this one.
Feb-01-05  MoonlitKnight: 52...Nd6 runs into 53.Bb8+ for one thing. Other lines just give the piece back, when the rook endgame is easily won.
Sep-28-05  Poisonpawns: "Cramped positions contain the seeds of defeat" Thats all i have to say about this one.51.Nxe5! and look at blacks pieces,amazing.

Could you post your line?

At first glance, 56. Re7+ Nd7 57. f7 Ra8 58. Re8 Kb7 and I don't see how it's better than the actual game line.
