  tpstar: I thought this was a pretty straightforward cross-pin (29. Rxb5! Rxb5 30. Qa4) but my students had unexpected trouble solving it. The key to this combination is the Bf1 preventing any Zwischenzug checks on the first rank. Note the double trade 30. Rxb5?! Rxb5 31. Qa4 fails to 31 ... Rb7 safely unpinning, while the Deflection 29. Bh3? loses to 29 ... Qxh3 30. Qxd5 Bc6!/Bc4! (Discovery) winning material. Finally, the obvious 29. Qxa5 Bc6 is eminently drawish.

Notice how White expertly undermined the awkward Ba4 setting up the fireworks.

  Check It Out: Good notes, <tpstar>. White had a very nice light square strategy on the queenside to set up the tactics you highlighted.
