6/10/2011 – In this position White had just played 26.Nxe5 inviting his opponent to go for 26...Rxg2. Which continuation leads to victory after that? A) 27.Nf7+ Kg8 28.Nh6+; B) 27.Ng4+ Kg8 28.Qe6+;  C) neither nor, Black can always save his skin with a discovered (counter)check. The solution is here, but first ponder over it with a larger version of the diagram.
