Apr-05-05  watchchess79: Can any body tell me what would have happened if white takes the bishop 28.fxg6 ?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Albertan: Watchdog if 28.fxg6? then play could have continued: 28.... Rxg6 29. Qc4+ Kh7 30. R1e6 Rxe6 31. Qxe6 Qg8 32. Qf5+! Kh8 33.d7 Qf8 34. Qxf8+ Rxf8 35. Re8
Jul-27-06  McCool: The right path would be 28. ♕c4+! ♔h8 (if 28...♔h7 29. ♖xg7+! ♔xg7 30. ♖e7+ ♔f8 31. fxg6 wins) 29. fxg6 ♖xg6 30. ♕f7 ♔h7 31. ♖1e6!
Aug-07-07  apple pi: What if 20. Qa3 (threatening 21. Re8#)?

  WannaBe: <apple pi> 30...Kg8 should be okay.

  GrahamClayton: According to Rybka White would have a +11 advantage after 28. fg6. I am not familiar with the evaluation system used by Rybka. What is the biggest plus that anyone has seen?
Nov-19-11  Helios727: And if 28. fxg6 Rxg6 29. Qc4+ Kh7 30. R1e6 Rxe6 31. Qxe6 Qg8 32. Qf5+ Kh6 33. Qe4 white has it nailed.
