dfcx: Was thinking of 43...Bf3 44.Nd2 Bxg2 45.Kxg2 Rb2 46.Rd8 a2 47.Ra8 Rxd2+ and it becomes very drawish. So going back and saw Rxg2+ clears the path for the pawn and white is hapless against a2 -> a1=Q

dfcx: Material is even. This is a very touch puzzle. Stockfish does not like the game line. After 34...Qxh2+ 35.Kxh2 Rh6+ 36.Bh3.Nxh3 37.Kg2 Nxf2 38.Kxf2 Rg8 Black is only slightly ahead (-0.87, depth 24). [DIAGRAM] Stockfish likes 34...Rg8 35.Ne2 Bg4 36.f4 exf4 ...

dfcx: 11.Bxh7 wins a pawn. Black must refuse the pawn or be mated. 11.Bxh7+ Kxh7?? 12.Ng5+ Kg8 (longest defense) 13.Qh5 Nf8 14.Qxf7+ Kh8 15.h5 Bxg5 16.Ng6+ Nxg6 17.hxg6+ Bh6 18.Rxh6+ gxh6 19.Qh7# *

dfcx: also 30...Qf2! wins faster than the game line.
   Jun-27-17 G Chandler vs E Gilliand, 1981 (replies)
dfcx: White is down a piece and has three options at move 11..Bxf6, Nxf6 or Qxf6. 11. Qxf6 looks most promising since 11...gxf6? 12.Nxf6+ Kf8 13.Bh6#. If black refuses the queen, its best option is 11...Nxd5 12.Qxg7 and wins the rook.

dfcx: <MrCarciofo: What about ...Bxf2; Rxf2, Ng4 with in my opinion a strong Attack for Black. Not a good puzzle today.> 19.Qd4! and black is in trouble..
   Jun-19-17 Van der Wiel vs J van Baarle, 1983 (replies)
dfcx: <FSR: <sudoplatov> 16.Rg7+ is much inferior to 16.Rf8+. Black can stagger on with 16...Qxg7 17.e7+ Nxc4 18.e8=Q+ Bf8.> White should play 18.Qe8+ Qf8 19.Qxf8#
   May-29-17 G Soutar vs G Chandler, 1994 (replies)
dfcx: 16...Rh1+ and mates in 4. But one has to figure out why 16...Qh6 fails. 16...Qh6 17.Rd1 Qh2+ 18.Ke1 and the bishop on g2 is blocking black queen's path to f2, so black has to deflect the bishop on g2 first with 16...Rh1+!

dfcx: <Cheapo by the Dozen: A few seconds to find the move. A couple more to see that it's actually a mate in 2. A few seconds further to realize that it ISN'T actually a mate in 2. :) Mate in 3 is just fine.> And one more drink later IT IS MATE in 2.
   May-17-17 D Arutinian vs B Laurent, 2007 (replies)
dfcx: 29.? White to move. It's very tempting to play 29.Bd4 and hope black plays Qxe8 30.Rh8 mate. But black turns the table around with 29.Bd4 Rxf2+ and it's white's turn to choose between the queen and king. Better for white is 29.Rh8+ Kxh8 30.Bd4+ cxd4 31.Qxe2 [DIAGRAM] Not a easy ...
