Jul-15-04  Helloween: 29...Rxa2! finishes White off, going up a handful of pawns for the exchange with continuing threats on the King.
Jul-15-04  dicksosa: 29... Rxa2 -- comedy he is just like stupid pawns go away.. 34. Qxg1 Qxc2+
then you have
35. Kf1(Ke1) Qc1+ 36. Kf2 Qe3+ and the white queen is gone.

35. Kf3 Qxd3+ 36. Kg4 f5+ (37. gxf6+ Nxf6+ 38. Kh4) 37. Kh4 then what?

Once the king is on h4 what is blacks continuation?

Jul-15-04  Dick Brain: Why didn't Black simply play 28...Rxa2 when it was hanging for free? Is it possible that 28.Ke2 was really 28. Ke1 ?
Jul-15-04  Dick Brain: 33. Rg1! is a pretty smart move using the desperado condition to deflect the white queen from the d-pawn defense.

Notice that in these lines Black also could have won by setting up a battery on the 1st rank which forms a mating net along with the Black pawn on d4. That is -> 32...Qb1 looks strong threatening mate. White cannot protect the d1 square with the bishop by 33. Be2 because of 33... Qb5+. So it looks hard to stop Black's attacking motif with ... Rxa2.

Can White hold off this attack on move 28 by playing 28. Bh3 so that 28... Rxa2 29. Rxa2 Qb3+ 30. Rc2 Ra1+ 31. Ke2 Qb1 is not quite so dangerous because of 32. Bg4 covers d1 without taking away precious air from the king as it would on e2.
