Jun-11-06  chekmanirov: How does Nex6 win?
Jun-11-06  borisbadenoff: It wins a rook?
Jun-11-06  Petrocephalon: Note that

27.Nxe6 Nxe6 28.Qxd5+! Kc7 (..Kxd5 29.Bg2#) 29.Qxe6

27..g4 is definitely no good.

So what happens after 27..Qf7? I don't think 28.Nxf8 can be right, in view of 28..g4. I would guess 28.fg Qxe6 29.g6

Jun-12-06  borisbadenoff: <Petrocephalon: So what happens after 27..Qf7? I don't think 28.Nxf8 can be right, in view of 28..g4. I would guess 28.fg Qxe6 29.g6>

Why not? The 28. .. g4 is not to be feared but I admit you have to check some more deeper moves to see why.

27. .. Qf7 28. Nxf8 g4 29. Qxd5+! The only possible move the exchange of queens. 29. .. Qxd5 30. Bg2

Variant a
30. .. Qxg2 31. Kxg2 with clear advantage for white and the idea Nf6

Variant b
30. .. Ne7 31. Bxd5+ Nxd5 32. Nf6 Nxc3 33. Rb2 Rh7 (or something else depending on you further plan) And white with the idea Bd2 -> Bxa5

But as of the particular structure of the position maybe a draw for black is still in reach if black defends the optimal way and white makes 1-2 inaccuracies

Jun-12-06  Petrocephalon: Ah, I missed the fact that if the knight (after 28.Nxf8) isn't captured immediately, then the Qxd5+ idea still works b/c e6 is covered.
