From the wealth of variations, may it suffice to name only three in this critical position (after 25...Bf3+). How would you assess each of them? A) 26.Kc2 Rfc8+ 27.Kb1 B) 26.Rxf3 Qxf3+ 27.Be2 Qxf6 28.g5 C) 26.Rxf3 Qxf3+ 27.Be2 Qh1+ 28.Kc2 The solution is here, but first ponder over it with a larger version of the diagram.
