    It's a weird game where I'm +4 in material, but I let white get a ridiculously good attack on me with my queen and rook forked and my other rook hanging and a reveal check on my king. I found a way out which I'll tell later, but maybe there's a better way?

    I'll tell you when the game ends.



    You're not in bad shape at all.

    It ended already so feel free to post I ended up getting the win but I of course made it much more difficult than it needed to be at the end. I'll post the game # after I get some replies.

    Ne2+ seems like the best move to me

    (then again, my endgame is atrocious)

    Qf2+

    So far everyone's had a different move. Ill wait till at least one person agrees with one of the moves before I say what I did. Also, giving reasons for why you suggest a move would be nice.

    1...Qxf2+ 2.Nxf2 Ne2+ (I couldn't get anywhere if I tried to retake on f2 with a rook right away)

    Ok,but there's not much reasoning to it.It's all tactics:
    -1...,Qxf2+ 2.Nxf2,Ne2+ 3.Qxe2,Rxe2 4.Bd3,Rfxf2 5.Bxc4(5.Bxe2,Rxe2 and white's simply a piece down),Rg2+ 6.Kf1,Ref2+ 7.Ke1,Rc2 8.Kf1,Rxg3 and white's a pawn + exchange down.

    -1...,Qxf2+ 2.Nxf2,Ne2+ 3.Kg2,Ne3+ 4.Kh1,Nxg3+ forking K+Q

    -1...,Qxf2+ 2.Nxf2,Ne2+ 3.Kh1,Nxg3+ forking K+Q

    -1...,Qxf2+ 2.Nxf2,Ne2+ 3.Kf1,Nxg3+ forking K+Q

    After 1...,Rxh7 white has a nice zwischenzug: 2.Qe8+!

    ...rXh7 2. qe8+ kg7 3.qd7 kg8 with the black queen able to intercept

    Obviously you drop the other rook but still ahead. Have i missed somthing from whites attack?

    ...Rxh7 2.Qe8+ Kg7 and then whites knight could take blacks queen. Following that white has Ne6+ or even forking possibilities on the e5 square so, black can no longer attack and has to take up defensive positions.

    very scary to miss knight takes queen. hides away.
