Hi Louis!

22. Qf6+ Bxf6 23.gxf6+ Kg8 24. Ng5 Nxa3 25. Rxh7 Nb5 26. Rg7+ Kh8 27. h4 Nd6

and this one position:

But it differs from your position only by the one 28.Rh7+ Kg8 already in the new output, and Bh3 could be played already there as well, so not much difference.

Actually I was writing about this one line (taken from Fat- Fritz- output)

### Re: Winning after Qf6+!

Typo: Bg3, not Bh3. Anyhow Bg3 already works from your position onwards as well, even already from 27.h4 Nd6(?) at once.

Peter.

### Re: Winning after Qf6+!

Sorry for the confusion.

1. Qf6+ Bxf6 2. gxf6+ Kg8 3. Ng5 Nxa3 4. Rxh7 Nb5 5. h4 Nd6

Stockfish-dev doesn't seem to see this as winning for White. Evaluation seems stable at 1.40 or so.

I also recall in some of the positions with Ng5 & Rxh7 that may be the same or similar, old SF with PV=2 was thinking that White had to give perpetual check on g7 or h7 or else Black would put a R on b7 guarding f7, and then move the R on f8, and then the Black K could escape and Black would win.

So I'd like to see how that sort of thing is avoided by White in these lines.

Does this mean Ng5 line instead of Bd2 also wins?

Endgame at the end of this line looks winning for white.

I told my wife that a husband is like a fine wine; he gets better with age. The next day, she locked me in the cellar.

### Re: Winning after Qf6+!

No, that was after a blunder of Black again,

22. Qf6+ Bxf6 23. gxf6+ Kg8 24. Ng5 (?) Nxa3 25. Rxh7 Nb5 26. Rg7+ Kh8 27. h4 Nd6 ?

It was just an output- line of Fat Fritz.

BTW Fat Fritz at 2xRTX2080 4 threads and 2G hash sticked to 24.Ng5(?) still after 10 minutes, stopped it then.

27.h4 is still drawn, but 27...Nd6 (?) (...Nxd4 instead holds) loses, yet not as soon as after 28..Qd8( ?) (better 28...Ne8).

### Re: Winning after Qf6+!

That line after ...Nd6 may still be unclear, but anyway Peter posted on the first page that "...Nxd4 instead [of ... Nd6 (?)] holds".

Edit: see Peter's post above. FF does not come out of this looking good.

### Re: Winning after Qf6+!

Try to give in 6. (27.) Bg3 at once already there and then wait and see.

To be sure, not to be misunderstood again, that works only after 5... (26...) Nd6 (?), not after 5...Nxd4, which draws again.

Peter.
