Chess Puzzle (16) Solution !

Chess Puzzle (16)

Black to move



The position above  is from one of my recent Internet Chess Club(ICC) blitz ( 5 minute) game.

Secutor - Hairulov
ICC, 5 minutes blitz, 23.2.2010

Black to move !

34...Re3 ! 


stronger then 34...Nd6. Now black is threatening white`s queen .

35. Rxc4 if he choose to capture the rook then 35. fxe3 Qxg3+ 36. Kh1 ( 36.Kf1? lost the queen after 36...Nd2+) 36...Qh3+ 37. Kg1 Bh6 38. Rc3 (38. Bxf7+ Kg7 39. Qc3+ Kxf7) 38... Bxe3+ 39. Rxe3 Nxe3 40. Bxf7+ Kg7


35... Rxb3 36. Rxg4 Rxb5 37. Rxg6+ Bg7 37... Kh7 also ok for e.g  38. Bxf7 (38. Rg5 Rcc5 39.Rxh5+ Kg7 40.Rg5+ Kf6 41.Bb3 Rxg5 42.hxg5 Rxg5) 38... Rf5


38. Be5? the losing move. White can still offer tougher resistance with 38.Rd6 38... Rc1+?! In time trouble ( we play blitz remember!) i miss the simple  38... Rxd5!  39. Rxg7+ Kf8 40. Rg5 Ke7 41. Bf6+ Ke6)


39. Kg2 Rxd5 40. Rxg7+ Kf8 41. Rh7?? blunder . White can play for a draw with 41. Rg5 Ke7 42. Rxh5 Ke6 43. Bb2 Rxh5 44. Bxc1 Rxh4  


41... Rxe5 0-1
