Originally posted by Fat LadyWow I missed that one, thanks. And yeah I think I became too focused on the king. I thought after Ba6 he either had to sac his rook or move back to the center of the board where I had mate threats.... I completely missed him being able to go to b8... was a bad mental block
After 21. ... Kc7 the black bishop on e7 is under defended and you could have won it with 22. g3. I know you were after the king at that stage, but I don't think you can mate the king, and winning a piece instead is a good consolation prize.
