Nov-29-04  flamboyant: i guess there is nothong to do against rg8+, and the black queen is dead
Dec-07-04  chess man: YOUR GUESS IS RIGHT!
Feb-05-05  Milo: 33...Bxf5 is best, with a completely lost game for black. 33...Bc8 34.Rg8+ Kd2 35.Qd1#
Nov-03-07  Visscher: 31 Kd6 isnt that a possible sollution?
Aug-09-09  Antonius Blok: 31 ...Kd6 32.Qf6+:

If 32...Kc5 No need to pursue the King, maybe Rxf7 and will be hard to stop the f5 passed pawn.
