  Honza Cervenka: Why not 27.Rcxc4?
Jun-06-03  morphynoman2: I suppose 27. Rcxc4 Rb1 28. Nf1 N6g5!?, with at least three strong menaces: Nxf3, Rxe5, and Nd2

  Honza Cervenka: Maybe I'm missing something but I don't think that this is a problem for white. If 27.Rcxc4 Rb1+ 28.Nf1 N6g5, then 29.Rxe4.
Jun-06-03  bishop: Honza, if 27.Rcxc4 then ...N6c5 28.Ra5 Rxe5 29.Nxe5 Rb1+ 30.Nf1 Nd2 wins.

  Honza Cervenka: <bishop> The line after 27.Rcxc4 N6c5 28.Ra5 Rxe5 is definitely bad for white, but white can play 28.Rxe4.
