Here is the position after Qxa7 Qe4 Qxb6 Nf3

[D]7k/5p1p/1Q2n3/6P1/2P1q3/2P2nR1/P5RP/3r2BK w - -

After a short time, Warp settles on the sensible looking Rxf3 Qxf3 Qf2.  Now I
think that either Nxg5 or Qxf2 is forced.  Other moves give white alot of

Nxg5 looks critical, white has various attempts but perhaps this is sufficient:
Nxg5 Qxf3 Nxf3 Rg3 Nxg1 (Rf1!? Kg2 Rxf1 Kxf3) Rxg1

[D]7k/5p1p/8/8/2P5/2P5/P6P/3r2RK b - -

Can white win this endgame?  Maybe.
A possible line is Rd3 Rc1 Rd2 Ra1 Rc2 a4 Rxc3 a5 Rxc4 a6 Rc8 a7 Ra8 Kg2 and
white can win I think by penetrating with K on the K-side.
