    Unfortunately, doesn’t work due to 1…Rxd2 2.a6 Ne1 and Black captures the g2 pawn and then gives the exchange away. Two pawns for the exchange is more than enough to have an OK position. The win is 1.Rb7!

    1. Bd2 Rxd2 2. a6 Ne1? 3. a7 now the a pawn will Queen after Rb8+

    Yes, and this is Black’s point. Black will be only an exchange down and fine as I mentioned earlier 🙂 2..Ne1 is the refutation of 1.Bd2.
