    White wins so I guess black.

    Is this another suicide by forum post?

    I would have alerted the mods already, but I think it's an honest mistake.

    Yeah, I though for sure my pawn would punch through, but I missed the queen coming down behind the pawn, I should have prepared the sac by getting my back bishop out so the rook could have taken the my rook snatcher, that may have made it a more potent attack. As it was, the attack was an illusion!

    No, his queen just comes to a5 and stops all that stuff. Thats why I didn't immediatly push. I saw the queen coming in. I was going through all kind of hoops to keep it out of there. Ah, you beat me to it.

    Hrm, I'm having a tough time finding a winning line for black after bxa3, I'm not sure your sacrifice was justifiable.

    Yeah, it's tough for you after that, I think the main problem with the sacrifice is that your queen is out of play, and white's d pawn prevents too many troubles - trying axb2+ with Rb8+ to follow doesn't seem to work because of this reason. You probably should have spent another move or two preparing this attack and attempted to swing your queen onto the a or b file first.

    Yes, in retrospect....amazing how hindsight is 20--20! I think the main thing I missed was getting my back bishop out of the way so I could take that accursed bishop, it screwed up my whole attack.
