    "End of the Road for Endrody" (game of the day Dec-22-07)
    Budapest 1977 · Pirc, Classical (B08) · 1-0
    1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 g6 4.Nf3 Bg7 5.Be2 O-O 6.O-O Bg4 7.Be3 Nc6 8.Qd2 e5 9.d5 Ne7 10.h3 Bxf3 11.Bxf3 Qd7 12.Ne2 Qb5 13.c4 Qa6 14.Ng3 b6 15.Bh6 Rfd8 16.Bxg7 Kxg7 17.Be2 c6 18.f4 cxd5 19.cxd5 Qa4 20.fxe5 dxe5 21.Rxf6 Nxd5 22.Rxf7+ Kxf7 23.exd5 Qd4+ 24.Qxd4 exd4 25.Rd1 1-0

    03 cheelay: After 21.Rxf6, if Kxf6 then what?

    I'm thinking 22.Qh6 threatening both Rf1# and Nh5#. Then I imagine black would play 22...Nxd5 providing an escape square for his king. But after that it gets too muddy for me to tell who's winning.

    Is there a more efficient move than 22.Qh6 in this line?
