  Knight13: 35... Rxb2 followed by Rc2 and Black should be winning, or is there a reason why Black didn't play this?
Jan-15-05  beatgiant: <Knight13: 35... Rxb2 followed by Rc2 and Black should be winning> How far down the line have you checked this? White can counterattack Black's pawns too, so I'm not sure it is winning.

Here is one example:

35...Rxb2 36. Ra8+ Kf7 37. Rb8 Rc2 38. Rxb7+ Kf6 39. Rd7 Rxc3 40. Rxd6+ Kg5 41. Re6 Rb3 42. Rxe5+ Kxg4 43. Rc5 Rxb4 44. Rxc6. Black takes four White pawns, White takes four Black pawns.
