Jun-24-04  KingPawn: would 35..q-e4+ work. instead of rook to b8
Jun-24-04  suenteus po 147: 35...Qe4+ meets face to face with 36.f3.
Oct-29-07  Whitehat1963: Does the knight fork, 35...Ne2, work also? I'm not sure I understand the finish.

  tpstar: Black played 35 ... Rb8 to avoid 36. Qxf8+ Kh7 37. Qxg7#, but now the Rc1 is attacked along with the secondary threat 36 ... Qe4+ winning the Bd4. 36. Be3? fails to 36 ... Qe4+ 37. f3 Qxf3+ mating, and 36. f3 loses to 36 ... Bxc1 37. Qxc1 Qe2 38. Qg1 Qxf3+ 39. Qg2 Qxg2#.
Aug-29-18  ughaibu: Whitehat1963: white was threatening to take the rook on f8. After black moved it to b8, white can't defend all the attacked pieces and the threat of Qe4.

  sea7kenp: Yes. If White moves the Rook off of the c File, he loses a Bishop. If he moves it off of the Back Rank, 36 ... Qe1#
