  Jimfromprovidence: 46 Bc4! was a drop-dead gorgeous move, threatening to remove the guard of the queen and the rook.

46Qxc4 is completely forced, allowing white to gain a rook vs. knight advantage.

Apr-28-09  310metaltrader: I do not get why the queen has to take. So the bishop takes knight - is that enough to pass the pawn to queen?

Apr-28-09  returnoftheking: <metaltrader> I think that if white trades on e6 he has a nice threat: Qa8. Black playing f.e. Kg7 does not help for then trading and moving b8! is a threat since after fxe6 the queen can't take on b8. Maybe that is why black needs to take?

(Rb8 does not work either; Qxb8 and Ra8)
