(32 Nxe6+) Thank you. It turns out that they have already replied (with the forced move 32 ... Kd7), so I'll start a "White 33" thread.

Again I'll state that, although I disagree with some of...

Alternative:
38 Bf1 (to be able to answer ... Nc4 with Bxc4, and to answer ... Nb3 with Bc4+)

If 38 ... Nxf1 39 Kxf1 This may be another way for Black to use the knight to protect the a5-pawn ......

Since Black will have only _one_ legal move after 32 Nxe6+, I think this is a unique situation in which an if-move should be acceptable. However, in view of previously-expressed preference by the...

(not ... Nb3 39 Rxb3) Oops. R is not on b-file anymore, so ... Nb3 is also possible.

Revision:
38 Ra7 threatens 39 Rxa5, but now it's on the same diagonal as our king, so before Black's B can...

Yeah, we have more grip on the position in that line.

"Grip" like ... winning by force, I now think. (But I've been wrong about that before.)

Between our choices after 31 ... Bxc3,

32 Nxe6+ is the branch we've looked at longer, and we've probably uncovered/eliminated all possible traps/tricks by Black on the next few moves.

Perhaps ... I was ... a bit ... hasty ... there.

While that "fight" statement is literally true, if Black makes a mistake or two we may get near to a checkmate. (e.g., 31 ... Bxc3 32 Nxe6+ Kd7 33...
