Dec-29-05  Whitehat1963: What on earth is the finish here? I see the rook is pinned, but why end on such a quiet note?

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Black is threatening to win an entire Rook with ...Bxe3+; Qxe3,fxe5. So 31.Bh2, Bxe3+; 32.Qxe3,g5!; 33.Qe7,Rf7 and the King side attack is stopped.

Not a combo, but the engine thinks White can keep a goodly advantage with a little rearrangement of the pieces (one not played).

Jun-10-18  zanzibar: Agree with <Whitehat1963>, the ending is a little bizarre(*). But it's not really that quiet, e.g. the h-pawn push leads to good things for White if captured.

(Play it out with an engine - White's K-side attack is there, but only if Black missteps.)

(*) E.g. why not 29...Bxe3+ 30.Qxe3 f6, as the ...f6 idea eventually is played anyways.
