    check the last 6 moves in this game:
    Game 6926263

    most NON natural moves I have seen in a won position(for white)...
    especially Ra1b1 plan is amazing (even it matches my engine first choice).

    As the players were both about 2300 at that time, can someone enlighten me my strong players do not go for simple wins?

    Black did not play his best.
    (I know because he has slaughtered me at blitz)

    24 ... g6? instead of taking the bishop

    27 ... Rg7? pinning his rook on his rook??

    31 ... Ka7? instead of resigning black puts his king in a corner to await mate
