stingray0104: I was also thinking 38...Rxa7. Checked with a computer which suggests it is still completely winning but it allows 39 Qxb5, threatening Qe8 and perpetual, so black must retreat to defend. Looks like 38...Rb1 does a better job maintaining the initiative, and black wins the ...

stingray0104: Black over-committed to the queen side and white was able to drive a wedge between black's king and his pieces. With VIP access to black's king, white has several winning ideas, including cracking open black's kingside pawns, doubling rooks on the seventh rank, etc.

stingray0104: Funny, the player's name gave the puzzle away.

stingray0104: Thanks, I think I was just fortunate to be doing the puzzle right as the second hint appeared.

stingray0104: <How about 37...Re7 38. Rxe7 Kf8 and black should be able to put up some fight.> Yes, but white maintains a rook on the seventh rank with something like 39. Rxb7 and the black king becomes a sitting duck for the white queen which will quickly become active.

stingray0104: Black can opt to lose the bishop rather than trade queen for rook with 39...Kf5 40. Rf1 Bf3 but white's plethora of passed pawns should be too much.

stingray0104: After 15. Kd2 there are 2 mate threats (one is the game line, the other Nxc6+) as well as an attack on the queen. Black can't meet all 3 of these threats, but his best fighting chance would have been to let the queen fall.
 
   Aug-06-14 Gheorghiu vs Polugaevsky, 1973 (replies)
 
stingray0104: The first line I considered was actually 40. ♕xg7+ ♔xg7 41. gxh7+ ♔f7 42. h8=♘+ since of course, I couldn't resist an underpromotion! Interestingly enough, I believe white does come out ahead in material as the black queen is inevitably lost. For ...

stingray0104: White takes a move longer to mate so that he can win in the flashiest possible way. Very cool final position, but can't say I was all that impressed with black's play.
 
   May-23-14 Wade vs J Vilardebo Picurena, 1946 (replies)
 
stingray0104: <saniloma> 22. ... Qc5+ also wins but it is not a mate in 2; for instance, 23. Ka4 Qxc4+ 24. Qb4
