Why would black go Rg6? it doesn't help him, he might as well just give up the Queen Qf7, bxf7, Kxf7, Qe7!, Kg6.

That's certainly not a *good* position for black, but he's traded a queen and pawn for a rook and bishop -and it's not obvious that the position is completely hopeless.

You make a valid point,black K is now forcing white Nf5 to move,black has more pieces to work with and seem's to be safe,good analysis,black still live's to fight,it would be interesting to see where game went from there,Thank's for some food for thought

Not really, since (after 2...Qf7) 3.Bxf7 is a senseless move when 3.Qe7 gives mate !

I feel like that was kind of the same as yesterdays...

Great exercise in end game recognition.  Threat on the first lady is nothing but that. Opponent's king is trapped.  Just get those pawns out of the way!

Last page! For now at least!

Seriously, MSC157?  You're so obsessed with being first that you actually made a video about how to be first.  You should seek some medical attention about this!  :-p
