24. ♖xg4 makes the blowout

I suspect a majority of solvers will not settle for the text move, 24.Rxg4, even though it forces mate. Perhaps you would like to figure out why?

  Jim Bartle: Looks like Rxe7 followed by Qg7+ and Rh3 is impossible to stop.
Jan-08-11  sevenseaman: A belligerent, combative Sefc! The mate after 24...fxg4?

I wish I knew the right way to pronounce Sefc! Polish?

Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: <sevenseaman> Czech, actually, which probably doesn't help you much.

One line of the mate after 24...fxg4 starts 25.Qh6+ Ke8 26.Qh8+ Kf7 27.Qh7+ followed by 28.Rxe7 and Black can only delay mate for a couple of moves.
