Because White would still be left with one Rook
on the seventh rank, and the White Queen can
penetrate as well.

After 31. ...Rf7 there follows: 32. Rxf7 Kxf7,
33. g5, and the f6 pawn (and square) falls.

Sanny, there were a lot of wrong moves in this
I completely overlooked ...Nf4, which destroyed
my entire plan. Near the end, Rybka shows a
number of mate-in-twenty ideas which never even
occured to me, for some reason or other (damn
these confounded 3000+ players).
As for GetClub, it found several strong moves
but missed its opportunity after ...Ba6 by just
exchanging the Bishop on c4, when it could
have tortured me with tactics by leaving both
the Knight (on f4) and Bishop (on a6) on, and
throwing in a timely ...p-f5 to secure the d5
square for Black's Queen.
Right now, I'm getting hammered by one of
the middle levels at GC, having carelessly
overlooked what ought to have been an
obvious tactical cheap shot. I think I will
have to change my entire strategy against
this program; I'm going anti-computer, to
regain my self-respect (and stop getting
beaten up by unexpected tactical shots).
