  Dionysius1: What an extraordinary idea of Mr Sullivan!
Apr-13-22  rwbean: The interference idea works wonderfully on move 24 ... 24. d6! overloads the ♕ and white threatens ♘xb6 and destruction on f7. Should be a puzzle.
Oct-13-22  Ron: As to Mr. Sullivan's idea, its pretty good, I plugged in to Stockfish 15:

20. g5 Nh5 21. Rxf7 Qd8 (if KxR, then d6 and Black's position gets heavily much worse)

22. Rf1 Rf8 23. Rxf8+ Bxf8 24. h4 Bc8 25. Be3 Bg7 26. Bf3 Qf8 27. Bxh5 gxh5 28. Nd2 h6 29. Ng3 hxg5 30. hxg5 Qf7 31. d6 Bf8 32. Nf5 Qxa2 33. Rxa2 Kf7 34. Kf2 h4 35. b3 Bb7 36. Kf3 h3 37. Ra1 Bg7 38.
