    White's last move was a Queen sac: 28.Qf2xNd4.

    For if now 28...exd4 then 29.Bxd5+ K-moves 30.Bxa2 gets White out of trouble.

    HINT: BLACK wins or MATE in 6 moves
                                                         Black to Move

    1.... Ra1+ 2. Kc2 exd4 3. Bxd5+ Qxe1 4. Rxe1+ Rxe1 leaves Black a rook up.

    or 3. Rxa1 Qd2+ 4. Kb1 Qxe1+ 5. Kc2 Qd2+ 6. Kb1 Qc1#.

    Black wins or MATE IN 6 MOVES.

    In my first line Black wins (he's a rook up for nothing)  and in the second it's a mate in 6. Surely that solves the problem?

    Titohh has found an alternative line that wins a bit more material but I think the difference is a rather academic.
