Your judgement, please

6/22/2009 – Playing a quiet move with the enemy king being completely exposed can be very difficult, and even an absolute attacking artist like World Champion Mikhail Tal often could not resist the temptation of giving check. In this position White had just gone for 34.Rf1-f2. How would you assess this move? A) Just the right thing to do, White is not in a hurry and will safely rake in the full point after this. B) A mistake allowing the opponent a spectacular draw. C) This blunders the game - now a double attack decides for Black. The solution is here, but first ponder over it with a larger version of the diagram.larger version of the diagram.
