My Immortal Game

Heres a game I played recently OTB vs an opponent over 200 pts higher rated than me.  I usually am a little less risky but Its one of my best hair on fire wins ever.

    Nice job Dan. Way to sac pieces for the king, that's strong, gutsy play.

    I think 31...Kf8 does hold for black.  for instance.  32. Rh8 Nd2+! eg 33. Kb2 Rxc3 or 33. Qxd2 Qxh8.  So, 31...Kf8 32. Qf6+ seems like only way to continue but 32...Rf7 defends.  eg. 32...Rf7 33. Qd4 (reinstating the Rh8 threat) ...Qg7 34. Rh8+ Ke7

    Other responses are similar, such as 31...Kf8 32. Qd4 Qg7

     

    After looking at it some more I saw 

    I was planning Qf6+ if Kf8 but the rest was cloudy.

    31...Kf8 32. Qf6+ seems like only way to continue but 32...Rf7 defends.  33. Qd4 (reinstating the Rh8 threat) ...Qg7 34. Rh8+ Ke7 

    Dont forget...

    35.Qa7+ Ke6 (only move) 36. Re8+ Re7 37.f5+

    ...Ke5 wins material

    37 ...gxf5 38.fxg5+ Kf7 loses to Qxe7# so 

    3 moves.

    Kxf5 39 Qf2+ not winning the rook?? bc Qb2#

    .Kd5 maybe saves it for black.. not sure ...

    Ke5 wins the rook with check not allowing Qb2#
