1. ... Ra8and white suddenly is a rook down...greets, jan
First I saw no alternative however to:1. Qe5 Nxc62. bxc6 etc.with white slightly better, it has to be something else!Observation: As it is, not even Ne7 is hangig, but it could be with Rd8 in a different position.White's king position is also likely to mean something.So for the lack of alternatives. I find:1. Ra8! Rxb22. Ra1+ Qg13. Rxg1+ Kxg14. Rxe7is up with a piece after exchange of Q+R.Or even worse for white is:1. ... Rxa82. Qxb1+ Qg13. Qxg1+ Kxg14. Rxa8 Nd5is up with rook after exchange of Q+R.1. Ra8 must certainly be winning.
A variation that I forgot to mention:1. Ra8! Qg12. Rxa1 Rxb7 (Rxa1 Rxe7)3. Rxg7 Kxg74. Rxe7is also up with a piece.
Ra8 should win a piece at least1. Ra8 Rxb22. Rxa1+ Qg13. Rxg1+ Kxg14. Nxe7 1-0 (Piece up)1. Ra8 Rxa82. Qxb1+ Qg13. Qxg1+ Kxg14. Rxa8 1-0 (Rook up)
More variations:1. Ra8! Nxc6 (interesting try)2. Rxa1 Rg13. bxc6 Qxc64. Rf8 (not Rea8 I guess) h35. Rxg1 Kxg16. Qxb3is up with a rook.Only variation keeping queens on board.
Once again. There are 2 ways to defend against White's threat to capture Black's Q at b2. Direct and Indirect defense. The indirect defense of the Black Q with 1...Ra8!
1. … Ra82. Rxa8 Qxb1+3. Qg1 Qxg1+4. Kxg1 Rxa8 (up a rook)2. Rxb2 Rxa1+3. Qg1 Rxg1+4. Kxg1 Rxe7 (up a knight)
