Mar-19-11  ughaibu: Why didn't white take the rook, on move 34? It looks to me as if black has three checks, and that's all.
Jul-28-13  Skakalec: <ughaibu> After 34.Rxa8?? black wins by Qxf2+ 35.Kh1 Qxf1+ and now if 36.Ng1 Nf2+ 37.Kh2 Ng4+ wins the queen or if 36.Kh2 Qe2+! and now if Kg1 Qf2+ and Qxf3 with check or if Kh1/Kh3 after Nf2+ white loses the queen again after discovered check.

  Sastre: <Skakalec> After 34.Rxa8 Qxf2+ 35.Kh1 Qxf1+ 36.Kh2 Qe2+ 37.Kg1 Qf2+ 38.Kh1 Qxf3+ 39.Kh2, Black has nothing better than a perpetual. There is no way for Black to protect his bishop.
May-11-18  Grandma Sturleigh: <Sastre: <Skakalec> After 34.Rxa8 Qxf2+ 35.Kh1 Qxf1+ 36.Kh2 Qe2+ 37.Kg1 Qf2+ 38.Kh1 Qxf3+ 39.Kh2, Black has nothing better than a perpetual. There is no way for Black to protect his bishop.>

Black can avoid the perpetual with 39...Qe2+ 40. Kg1 Qd1+ 41. Kh2 Qd2+ 42. Kg1 Qc1+ 43. Qxc1 Nxc1 44. Rxe8+ Kg7
