Hi Vincent

Rxe1+ is a good move for black but not good enough to win imo. I think that Ne7 gives black the best chances.

Black to play

[d] 2n2bk1/pQ1q4/P4p1p/2p3p1/1pP5/1P3NB1/5P2/3rR1K1 b - - 4 39
There are quite a few options here for black but I propose that only one of them gives a good chance to win. What move do you think it is? :?

Thanks Martin - you played very well too! The game always seemed fairly equal after your decision to play 3. c3 instead of 3. Nf3 (whereupon I would have played c5!? going into the Sniper (or Sicilian Accelerated Pterodactyl) variation).
