So 11 now? Tough fights. Presumably ... fxg6 would keep Black's K-shelter intact for longer, and maybe ... Rd8 drove the WQ to where it wanted to go. Black's Q-side initiative was strong, but not stronger than an attack that nets the K!

I mentioned in the "Possum Prey" thread that Fritz finds an amazing line for white to keep some winning chances on the board (albeit with risk) against Axiom's own suggestion (which appears to be Black's best plan) of 26...Rxe3

Here it is:

1.e4 c5 2.d3 Nc6 3.g3 Nf6 4.Bg2 d5 5.f3 g6 6.Ne2 Bg7 7.0-0 0-0 8.Nd2 Rb8 9.h3 b5 10.f4 dxe4 11.Nxe4 Nxe4 12.dxe4 Qb6 13.c3 c4+ 14.Kh2 Rd8 15.Qe1 a5 16.Ng1 b4 17.Be3 Qb5 18.f5 Ne5 19.g4 Nd3 20.Qh4 Nxb2 21.fxg6 hxg6 22.Qf2 bxc3 23.Qxf7+ Kh8 24.Qxg6 Rd6 25.Qf7 Rd3 26.Rae1 Rxe3 27.Rxe3 c2 28.e5 Nd1 29.Qh5+ Kg8 Black threatens to queen, but white doesn't care, so long as he can win a queen back, and plays 30.a4 c1=Q Black has no time to move the old queen because of the threat of Be4 [30...Nxe3 31.Qf7+ Kh8 32.axb5 Nxf1+ 33.Qxf1 with too much lead in material] 31.Rxd1!! The whole point of this move is to return the exchange, becoming a pawn up because black invested a pawn in promotion. Both black queens are attacked by undefended pieces, and the position is such that neither of them can do anything to save the other! 31...Qxd1 Best 32.axb5 White is a pawn up in a messy position where it is not clear that Black has enough compensation.

thank you very much Kevin , was very kind of you to post that .

it was a fascinating position , and i thought Rxe3 was blacks only hope , and knew it would be extremely difficult to make plans work after that ....but sure i would not compete against the comp very well in that line ! :)

I was quite surprised when the computer found that (and it took it a long time and a lot of prodding to do so). Before that it was just confirming my suspicion that the best thing for white to do after ...Rxe3 is bail out and take the draw.

"Black has no time to move the old queen because of the threat of Be4"

30...Qb6 31.Be4? Qcxe3 and there is no mate. 31.Qe8+ Bf8 32.Rxc1 Qxe3 33.Rxc4! seems strong (if 33.Bd5+ I am concerned that Black will end up with a draw somehow because that bish has left his King).

I like 26...Rd2 myself, no idea if it is best or not though.

then 27.Nf3 -> g5
if 27....Bf6 then 28.Bh6

if 27....Bf6 then 28.Bh6I guess not then.

30...Qb6 31.Be4? Qcxe3 and there is no mate. 31.Qe8+ Bf8 32.Rxc1 Qxe3 33.Rxc4! seems strong (if 33.Bd5+ I am concerned that Black will end up with a draw somehow because that bish has left his King).

Yes in this line 31.Qe8+ mates (...Bf8 32.Qxf8+) etc. I should have mentioned that Be4 isn't the only problem, the queen also has to cover e8.

In that case, the Rxc4 line you gave is indeed good for white but Rf1 in the same position is even better.
