    Rc7+ if the king moves then Rxc3 followed by a7 wins easily while if Bc5 then Ba7 either wins a bishop, or exchanges everything, when a7 wins afterwards.

    BTW the position is from Robert James Fischer v. Max Euwe at the 1960 Leipzig Chess Olympiad.

    This was the game that arose from the Endgame Line of the Panov-Botvinnik, was it?

    Doesn't 3. Be5 win easier?

    Indeed the opening was the Caro-Kann Defense, Panov-Botvinnik Attack variation.
