Uncovered Check

I took the title of this blog entry from the position below:

Below is the full game score.  The position above occured in the late middle game.  Its an interesting position.  I had recently played my rook to b6, which wasn't a good spot, but I had wanted to double my rooks.   This sets up the possibility of luring my bishop off c5 and then playing c4-c5 with check winning the rook.  Again, see the full game below to see how this turned out.

Update:  I ran through analysis with Rybka and added some notes.
