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#.
I think I have found it:
For your hint about exd4, I will go with:
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.
