    From move 38 on the bishops have absolute control. The rook is helpless. Never had a game like this before!

    Hi Sonhouse,

    The Bishops with a passed pawn will easily beat the Rook.

    Back here just when you played Rxg4.


    How could you resist Bf1 threatening Rc6 mate.

    I saw that but was worried about the rook check, but I see the king has a hidey hole. Is there anything black can do about that b-f1 other than delaying mate for a couple of moves? For instance, B-f1, B-d7? I see after the B-f1. R-a2+ K-g1, B-e2 Doesn't that stop the mate?

    Except I had interposed the black bishop at E2 so the rook would say check but not double check.

    Right, it doesn't save the game, just the immediate checkmate. Then you hope the opponent blunders
