It looks like it's time for Rb4 to me. At least that's the plan I signed up for. Anyone else with a different idea? Streetfighter? Tony? Haven't read much from you guys lately.

The other fighting line other than 29...Ba4
29...Rb4 30.Nb3 Nb5+ 31.Kb1 Nc3+ 32.Kc1 Nxa2+ 33.Kd1
I like this, after 33...Ba4 or 33...Bf5. Check it out:
[fen]3R4/p3ppbk/6p1/5bPp/1r5P/1N3P2/n1PR1B2/3K4 w - - 0 34[/fen]
Nc3+ will get our knight back into play.

And here is something new to think about 29.... Rb4 30.Nb3 Ra4!?
Here withe has two moves Kb2 and Nc1. I think Nc1 is to passive, so 31.Kb2 Rxa2+ 32.Kc1 or 31... any good move with the N.
Any thoughts about this ?
Originally posted by !~TONY~!Have to agree with this. I can't find a forced win for us, but we have at least a draw with the possiblility of white going wrong (e.g.31. Bd4? looks like it leads to a better rook ending for Black after 31...Nxb2 32. Bxg7 Nxb3+ 33. axb3 Kxg7 34. Rxd7 a5, when h4 hangs and the h-pawn gets rolling. Maybe White's losing here." TONY - I'm pretty sure black is winning here.
The two moves I'd endorse would be:
[b]29...Rb4 30. Nb3 Ne4+ and now:
31. Bd4? looks like it leads to a better rook ending for Black after 31...Nxb2 32. Bxg7 Nxb3+ 33. axb3 Kxg7 34. Rxd7 a5, when h4 hangs and the h-pawn gets rolling. Maybe White's losing here.
31. Rd4! Nxf2 32. R8xd7 Bxd4+ 33. Nxd4 Nd1!? intending either . ...[text shortened]... nt to get all my material back and reach the drawn ending.
I vote for 29...Rb4.[/b]
