    Answer in white text:
    1.Re8+ [1.Nf6+ gxf6 2.Rxe1 and white is up only an exchange for a pawn and a lot of work still to do] 1...Kf7 [1...Bf8 2.Kxe1] 2.Nxd6+ cxd6 3.Rxe1 and white is a rook up.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.
