You are right - 58.♖e7 cuts the Black King off from the key defensive square b7. 58.♖e6+ helps Black by driving the King there.

My analyis is 58.♖e7 g2 59. ♖g7 h5 60. ♔a5, with the threat of ♔a6 & b7. Black can only stop this by ...♗e2, which loses the g-pawn.

Going back to earlier in the game, doesn't 22...♗f3 23.♗c5 ♗g2+ 24. ♔g2 ♗c5 leave Black a piece up?

Apr-12-09  MarbleSkull: Graham, that leaves black up a pawn, but leaves white with two rooks. White seems ahead there.

My fault - when I was analysing the position on my board I forgot to include the White rook on a1.

Apr-12-09  paul1959: Black should have played 19...Be6 with the threat of Bc4+. If 20 Ne5 Nh5 or 20 Nd2 Rae8 21 Rd1 Bc4+ or 20 Ne2 Bc4 21 Re1 Rae8 all look strong for Black. In the game , Black obviously missed 22 Qxf3.

  carpetshark: 22.-, Qc4+ also looks strong for black because after 23.Qd3 he can play 23.-,Qf4 and I can't see any proper method for white to defend himself.
