Indeed - Estrin shows the calculation that would win him the 7th ICCF World Championship title (1972-1976). An example is 28. e6+. 28. ♗b5+ would allow the Black king to move to the more active square e6. 28. e6+ fxe6 29. ♗b5+ forces the Black King to the passive square, which results in the winning of the exchange.
