Another Black Win

Black win

I won this correspondence chess club tournament game yesterday with Black when when my opponent playing White resigned after my 47th move. He was certainly right to do this as checkmate was inevitable. My Queen and Rook were going to work together to force the White King over to the a-file where they'd mate him against the edge of the board.

Position of pieces at game's end is shown at the top of this post, and our full move record is below:

1.d4 d5 2.e3 a6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Nf3 e6 5.a3 Be7 6.h3 O-O 7.Ne5 Nc6 8.Nxc6 bxc6 9.f4 h6 10.g4 Ne4 11.Nxe4 dxe4 12.c4 c5 13.b4 cxb4 14.axb4 Bxb4+ 15.Bd2 Bxd2+ 16.Qxd2 Rb8 17.c5 c6 18.Bxa6 Bxa6 19.Rxa6 Qc7 20.O-O f5 21.Kg2 fxg4 22.hxg4 Qb7 23.Ra2 Qf7 24.Qc2 e5 25.Qxe4 Qxa2+ 26.Kf3 exd4 27.Qxd4 Rbd8 28.Qc3 Rfe8 29.Rf2 Qd5+ 30.Kg3 Qe4 31.Rf3 Rd3 32.Qc2 Rxe3 33.Qxe4 Re8xe4 34.f5 Kf7 35.Rxe3 Rxe3+ 36.Kf4 Rc3 37.Ke5 Rxc5+ 38.Kd6 Rc1 39.Ke5 Rd1 40.Ke4 c5 41.Ke3 c4 42.Ke4 c3 43.Ke5 c2 44.f6 c1=Q 45.Kf5 Qg5+ 46.Ke4 Qxg4+ 47.Ke5 Re1+ 0-1

And the adventure continues.
