Nd3 is better for material, but Rd3+ probably wins faster.

Not officially, but one of the two white votes was for a resignation, and the other post admitted its looking bleak

qrs will probably wait for an official majority though, he seems to stick to the rules pretty tightly

worst case we have to make 1 or 2 more moves before white finally throws in the towel

gg guys thanks for sticking around till the end. This game sparked an interest in chess for me, and I've been improving (slowly) over the last 6 months.

And thanks for carrying team Karl despite zero input from me ;)

You can still just go Nb4 on the next turn, and if they want to throw away their rook instead, I'd say let them.
Ke6 is looking better imo.

I dont have to much time to look into this, but Ke6 looks solid.

Maybe Nb4 and depending on what they play Bd1+ in the next move to force the king on a worse positon?
the other good thing about nb4 is that it prevents them from sacrificying their rook. which is maybe good for them but it seems they dont do it anyway.

Hi,
 ... Nd5
Ra7+ Kg6 // just running away, if they play Ra6+ Kf5 Ra5 Kg4
a4* Nc3+ // i have no idea if a4 is their best move here or not... maybe Rb7 is better?
K?? Their King has no good moves now.
1.Ke1 Na4 and their rook is lost
2.Kf1 Na4/Nd1 and their rook is lost
3.Ke3 Rd3+
  Kc2 Nd1+ and their rook is lost :)
3.Kc2 Nd1+ and their rook is lost :) :=)

If they play Rb7 instead of a4 i think they can sacryfice their rook for the b3 and Bc2 which is better than losing the game instantly.
