lentil: 28. Rxg7+ Kxg7 29. Qb7+ was so obvious that I did not accept it as a solution for a Thursday puzzle. I got stalled at 28 ... Nxg7, when 29 Nf6+ Kf8 30 Nxe8 recovers the exchange but seems to usher the BK over to the Qside where he can seek shelter. What is the actual solution to 28. ...

lentil: I [verb here] 21 Nf4! Totally off the wall: knight suspended in space, radiating power.
