jrredfield: I saw this line right away: 28 ... Rxe3 29 Rxd4 Qxc1+ But didn't see the full mate sequence until later. 30 Qf1 Rxg3 31 Rd8+ Kg7 32 Rg8+ Kxg8 33 Qxc1 Rxg2+ 34 Kh1 Rc2+ 35 Kg1 Rxc1# 28 ... Qxc1 29 Rxc12 Rxe3 also looks like a win for Black.

jrredfield: I chose 27 ... Qa7 28 Rf4 Bxd4+ 29 Rdxd4 Rad8 30 Qe3 Rxd4 31 Rxd4 Qxd4 But as others have said, 27 ... Rxd4 also wins with 28 ... Qa7 following.

jrredfield: Sorry I've been AWOL - just moved to a new house. Back in action now. Looks like 32 Rxg6+ is best, but I also looked at 32 a5 and 32 f4. Like many POTDs in the last few months, I see several moves that appear to be strong for White, revealing how tenuous Black's position is.

jrredfield: I had no trouble seeing 24 d6 but then couldn't decide between 24 ... Bd5 or 24 ... Qxb2 Some possible lines: 24 ... Bd5 25 Bxd5 Nxd5 26 Bxe5 Rxe5 27 Rc8+ 24 ... Qxb2 25 Bxf7+ Kf8 26 Nh7+ Nxh7 27 Qxh7 Kxf7 28 Rc7+ Ke6 29 Qxg7 24 ... Bxg2 25 Bxf7+ Kf8 26 ...
   Aug-17-23 A Miltner vs M Thesing, 2006 (replies)
jrredfield: I'm going with the fairly obvious, echoing what others have said: 27 ... Qxc1+ 28 Nxc1 Rxc1+ 29 Kh2 Rh1+ 30 Kxh1 Ng3+ 31 Kg1 Nxe2+ 32 Kf2 Nc1 At this point, the pawns are essentially even and Black needs to utilize his extra piece to force White's hand. I don't see a ...
   Aug-16-23 J Arnason vs C Hansen, 1986 (replies)
jrredfield: White can afford to give up the rook to attack the black king head on with the queen. 49 Rxg6+ hxg6 50 Qxg6+ Kh8 After that I wasn't sure. Perhaps: 51 Bf5 (to prepare for Be6) 51 ... Rc7 52 Qh5+ and Black is doomed.
   Aug-15-23 H Spangenberg vs Ftacnik, 1994 (replies)
jrredfield: I wasn't sure at first between 24 ... Qg3 and 24 ... Ng3. It appeared after a longer look like Ng3 only results in a draw. So then I began to see the forks, especially the king/queen fork by the knight, and Black is quickly well ahead in material. 24 ... Qg3 25 Bxg3 Nxg3+ 26 ...
   Aug-14-23 J Diez del Corral vs A Medina Garcia, 1978 (replies)
jrredfield: It took me less than 5 seconds to see 29 Rxd7+ Qxd7 30 Qxa8+ Qc8 but then I wasn't sure. One possible line is: 29 Rxd7+ Qxd7 30 Qxa8+ Qc8 31 Qd5 Re8 32 Nxd6 cxd6 33 Qxd6+ Qd7 (forced) 34 Qxf6+ (starting to pick off pawns) This combination will put Black on defense and ...
   Aug-13-23 Dolmatov vs Speelman, 1989 (replies)
jrredfield: 18 Bxh7+ Kxh7 19 Qd3+ Kg8 was my first hunch, but if Black declines the sac, then I would play 18 Bxh7+ Kf8 19 Qg4 Rd8 20 Qxg7+ Ke8 21 Qh8+. It looks like whether or not Black accepts the sac, White attains a commanding lead.

jrredfield: <mel gibson: You're right - so many good moves.> Agreed. Here are the top five moves per Komodo Dragon: +12.09 30.e6 Rxe6 31.Nxe6 Qxe6 32.Bxg7 Rc6 33.Ba1+ Ng5 34.fxg5 Bd6 35.gxh6+ +7.80 30.Nxg7 Bxg7 31.e6 f6 32.exd7 Rxd7 33.Qg6 Ree7 34.Nf5 Qe6 35.Rc1 +5.66 30.Re1 Re7 ...
