Pins and Skewers - Lesson 27

  • #1

    Hi All:

    I hope somebody can help me with Lesson #27 of Pins & Skewers - Tactics. GM Wolff indicates Nxd4 as the correct move rather than N x Ra1. I am puzzled by this because the solution move leaves Black ahead by a bishop, but based on my thought of NxRa1, Black would be ahead by a Rook. Does anyone have any idea why the solution move is preferred?Undecided
