Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-30-04  ArmyBuddy: How is the last move a winning position? Black's king can still get out. I don't see an upcoming checkmate. Black king can go to b8 or d7 with impunity. Only thing I see is an invasion of the 7th rank by the rook. So what?
Nov-30-04  TheSlid: <ArmyBuddy> Hope things are not too hot out there!

If Black moves the King to d7, a rook check on b7 picks up the Queen. If he goes to b8, Queen checks on a7 and then a8 also lead to loss of the Queen. If the Black Queen interposes, then exchanging Queens gives white the exchange etc after Bb6+
