  sea7kenp: So what was Black thinking, when he played 23 ... Rxf6?

  fredthebear: Black surely realizes his peril, but 23...Rxf6? does not solve his problems, dropping the rook for a pawn w/a double attack on f8 and Ne5.

Instead, 23...Rb7 to increase defense of the 7th rank was better (retreat moves tend to be more difficult to find), but there's no definite plumber's fix available. Worse is just plain worse.
