Nov-10-05  delterp: 31...♖f1+! 32 ♖x♖ e1=♕+! then 33 ♖x♕ allows 33...♖x♖# or black is simply up a queen for a rook.

Very nice tactic. Black uses the <WEAK BACK RANK> (Black g4-knight covering the f2- and h2-flight squares) to promote his passed e2-pawn by using the <RELOADER> theme to <RELOAD> on e1 with mate.

31 ♘x♘b6?? ♖f1+! 32 ♖x♖f1 <blockaders do not defend> e1=♕+! 33 ♖x♕e1?? ♖x♖e1# <reloading on e1 with mate>
