How to win? Interesting game!
well, that at least was cute...
wbport i believe you missed something
Surely you take the bishop with the rook and then white will surely win from there?
if the Rxf3 then Qxd1+ winning the bishop back and forking the king and rook, suddenly black is wining and also has the option of perpetual check
Instead of 36.Ra3, I'd play 36.Bxf3+ and white has two rooks and a bishop versus the queen for tactics. That 'should' be winning for white.
36. Ra3 does work, but it's a little more than I'd risk in a 3-min game.
Edit: By the way, p-wnattack, after 36.Ra3 Qc1, then 37.Rd3 is still winning. If black takes with the bishop, then of course Rh3#. Taking with the queen gives white a rook up endgame.
I see, I overlooked that. But what about Rd3?
i know black is busted i was just pointing out there wasn't an immediate win for white like the OP suggests at the end of his diagram
Well it wasn't the OP that suggested this, but my apologies anyway. I took from your questioning of the line that black was still playing for the win.
Is stonewall really viable?
