Hey John,

After looking over my game with Greg, I think I found a fine combination. If you have the time, could you check it out and let me know what you think?

25. Rxc6 Qxc6
26. Qxf7! Rg8
27. Rc1! Qd6
28. Bg7+ Rxg7
29. Rc8+ with mate to follow.

Of course black can trade his queen for white's rook on move 27, but the resultant advantage for white would be too great.

I would be glad to look at the position but don't have the score or position! Please email a copy of either to me at

You are absolutely correct! Good job of exploiting Black's over-loaded Q. Hopefully, you'll find the solution over the board next time.
