2011-08-09 16:56:10nune1559Hard to see why one rook is better than the other. After 1...Rfd8, 2.Qb7 prevents the loss of the Be2, but 2.Qe4 is better and white has the advantage (pawn up plus bishop-pair). r3r1k1/2p2p1p/p3n1p1/1p1pPn2/7q/2PQ4/PPB B1PPP/R3R1K1 w - - 0 1 
2015-01-23 16:13:19grom431826Which rook? Take the Ra8 away from white queen attack only makes sense. I didn't bother to calculate lines.
