Once in a while you end up with a position that is noteworthy just by dint of its peculiarity. You will see that white is a rook up but his queen and king have become the unfortunate victims of the black rook when he played 36... Rh8. Well, there is a way out. I played 37. Rf7+ Kg1 (forced) and then 38. Ra8+ wins it for white even after 38...Qb8. My king and queen remained skewered by the rook.

a useless threat by black because of a winning series of moves for white. - Kiko

Nice finish!

Another entertaining line is
37.Rxf7+ Kg8
38.Rg7+ Kf8
39.Qxh8# (capturing the rook with mate, to 'break the pin' and run Black's nose in it)... :)

Best regards,
Hank
