@C-nack-- To call your move MOST BEAUTIFUL is LAUGHABLE! Queen for 2 rooks is only an exhange of pieces!
It's "one of the most beautiful moves I have ever found" not "I've found one of the most beautiful moves in chess". Also, it's not queen for 2 rooks. It's 2 rooks and queen for rook and queen.
where is the instant win?
26...Rxb2+ into 27...Qxb4! (much faster win than the intuitive 27...Rxe2), although I'm not sure if I'd be able to find it in the actual game. :)
What is the continuation after that?
but weird that minds work totally different, i would have just played g6 automatically..
I don't want to sound rude, but you could do the analysis by yourself instead of asking these questions. Either by an engine or by yourself (after all your rating is pretty high). :)
Anyways, I'm glad to help:
After Bb4 I think I would play Rc3.
Thank you for your analysis.
Rc3 is mate in 6.
After 26.cxb4 black has a forced mate in 14 according to the engine. x)
Wow, brilliant move. Your opponent must have been furious.
