    Really?  Can you explain what is so easy about it and why you would play your game like this?

    no mate

    Not every tactic has to lead directly to mate. Gaining an advantage (whether positionally or materially) is sufficiate.

    I'm trying to figure out how you guys think this is anyway useful for white? no check-mate, no advantage. no nothing! In the end white is short a pawn and the rook whereas all black lost is a rook.

    If you play it out on a good chess program, you will see that its all for positional advantage. There there are further piece exhanges that in the end leaves white with 1 pawn up and which he will be able to capitalize on.

    white can get a pawn up and good position with one move - its Qxa7

    I am with Kavitsa on this one  (see his comment)     Qxa7

    Just tested Qxa7 with Arena/Houdini chess engine and that works too. End game leaves white with a pawn up which is decisive.
