  Richard Taylor: After 28. ... Rac8 then maybe 29. Nxd6 and if then 29. ... exd6 30. Bxc8 Rxc8 31. Rxf6 looks strong. Or if 30 ... Rxe1+ 31. Rxe1 Nxc8 32. Re8+

Or 29. Bxc8 is possible

  wwall: After 28...Raxc8, just 29.Bxc8. If 29...Rxc8, then 30.Rxe7 Nxd5 31.Rxb7, threatening 32.Nxd6. If 29...Nxc8, then 30.Rxf6 Kg7 31.Nxd6 exd6 32.Rxe8 Kxf6 33.Rxc8 wins.
Aug-16-21  Cheapo by the Dozen: White's first three non-obvious shots were P-QB5, P-KB5, and P-QB8 (Q).

Pawns of the Bishop

Aug-16-21  Cheapo by the Dozen: The pun also gets a little support from the pawns-and-bishops-vs.-knights flavor of the game, which persisted all the way through.
