Jun-25-09  M.D. Wilson: 31. Rh6 wins.
Jun-25-09  WhiteRook48: oh i was thinking 31 axb4?
Jun-26-09  M.D. Wilson: 31. Rh6 is more decisive on first glance. It threatens mate if Kg8 or Rf7 remain in position or loss of Qd8, with Rh8 forking Kg8, if Kg8 moves to f8 to avoid mate. It's mate as well if Rh6 is followed by any move by Rf7 because of the control of the white squares by the threatening Qh5. All the while b4 is still hanging and of no threat to Kh1.

I don't have software for any analyses, but that's my initial impression.

Jun-26-09  M.D. Wilson: In fact, Kg8 can be forced to b8 in a sustained attack, followed by mate with Qxc8# or Rxc8#. Play it out, without the board, starting from 31. Rh6.
