Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-28-05  Mating Net: If Black plays 28...Kxg7? The wicked response is 29.Rc7+! which picks up the Black Queen via discovered attack.
Jun-28-05  aw1988: Of course Kxg7 is not '?', nor is Rc7 '!'.
Jun-28-05  Mating Net: Basically what you're saying then is that a move that wins the Queen (for the Rook)isn't a strong move, and the move that allows you to pick up the Queen isn't a mistake. I would have to assign that bit of logic a grade of '?!' for dubious.
Jun-28-05  Kangaroo: You all forgot to mention an alternative variation: <28... Rxd5 29. Qh6+ Kg8 30. Qh8+ Kf7 31. Rxf3+> and although White is only a bishop ahead, the game is clearly won.

Exclamation and question marks are optional!

Jun-28-05  aw1988: In the final position, black is already losing. Kxg7 is not a "bad" move, while Rc7+ is obvious.
