Re: The brilliant chess move (61)

Stockfish gives Rf2 score of +2.1 and does not need Na8!! Who needs Na8 when you can play Rf2, huh? Out of curiosity I tried to run Stockfish with multiPV=20 (deeply analyze all moves).

Re: How long to find h4?

Stockfish on my Q9550 needs 11 seconds to find it and give it +3.5.

At depth 25 score is +18 which means there is likealy a mate in a few more moves.

BTW engine disagrees disagrees with the second move of your line. For me it is 1. h4 Qe6 which gives one extra move.
