  sfm: And here I sit and say "Aha, smart, Black is a piece ahead after 29.-,R?d2+." Hadn't understood half of it. Brilliant play.

  Gilmoy: Not so hard: Black can instantly see Q(+P) for RB(+P), which is a 1-point "sac" for mayhem. That's close enough that it's worth a few minutes to think deeper.

Black's worry-board should contain blinking red warnings that he has <two en prise> (B+N). 29..Re2+ would return R+(B or N) for Q ... whoops, his profit would melt away. That's no fun!

To save <two en prise>, you could retreat one to protect the other, or trade/check out, or attack something of equal/higher value. 29..Be4+ wins an exchange, so there's that. Can we do better? Maybe save <both> minors? And <then> bag the Rook for nothing? Profit is fun!!
