1/26/2013 - White to Play and Win

Assessor

It's always very satisfying to repeatedly check your opponent and take pieces, even more so when you walk away with the queen and are left with the upper hand.

After 1. d7+, why not 1... Bxd7? I see that to be just as good as Kf7. Or am I missing something.

2. dxc8 also wins the queen, take queen with the rook or (after Qxc8) Nd6+

Well, white got the queen back and the game may be won; not very clear though:  1... Kxf6 2. Rd6+ Kg7 3. Rhd1 and white is best but has to play quite precise to win I think.

If Bxd7 it's mate in two with Nd6#,so that's why I moved, 1.d7+...Kf7,but black moved Kf7,so I just started checking,not knowing where it would leed, 2.Ng5+...Kg8, 3.Nf6+...Kh8, 4.Nf7+...Kg7, 5.NxQd8,title said to play and win,but ended after move 5,now to go back and try to find mate.Thank's Chess.Com,good day chess head's!!!

Why not 1... Qxd7 as black response?

After 2 Rxd7. Bxd7 3 Nf6+ black might still get a draw even after losing the bishop?
