Ah, with friends like Vincent who needs enemies?

I'm sure this is the logic that Kramnik too used when he lost to Fritz :-)
Translation: computers are good at wriggling out of sticky looking positions.

Oh wait the whole Kramnik match was yet another conspiracy, darn I forgot about

So instead of g6, better is either Rxf3 or Qb8+ followed by Rxf3.
