Few pieces

6/4/2011 – By giving up his passed pawn with 33.d6, White can force 33...Bxd6 34.Nxd6+ Qxd6 and make the black king vulnerable to checks. This...  A) ... leads by force to the win of Black's rook or queen; B) ... results in a balanced position/perpetual check; C) ... ultimately just blunders a pawn. The solution is here, but first ponder over it with a larger version of the diagram.
