Surely you take the bishop with the rook and then white will surely win from there?

if the Rxf3 then Qxd1+  winning the bishop back and forking the king and rook, suddenly black is wining and also has the option of perpetual check

I see, I overlooked that. But what about Rd3?

Instead of 36.Ra3, I'd play 36.Bxf3+  and white has two rooks and a bishop versus the queen for tactics. That 'should' be winning for white.

36. Ra3 does work, but it's a little more than I'd risk in a 3-min game.

Edit: By the way, p-wnattack, after 36.Ra3 Qc1, then 37.Rd3 is still winning. If black takes with the bishop, then of course Rh3#. Taking with the queen gives white a rook up endgame.

i know black is busted i was just pointing out there wasn't an immediate win for white like the OP suggests at the end of his diagram
