    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.
