One possible variation from an amateur-
1. f6 Rxg6
2. f7 Rf6
3. c7 Rxf7
4.. c8=Q Rc3+
5. Kb2 Nd3+
6. Kc2 Nf2
7. Qg4+ Ng3
8. = 1/2-1/2

1 f6, Ra7+
2 Kb4,Nd3+
3 Kb5,Ne5
4 g7, Ra8 and black runs into al kinds of problems

1. f6 Rxg6 2. f7 Rf6 3. c7 Ra6+ 4. Kb4 (probably better then Kb2 cause after 4.. Ra8 5. Kxc1 Kf3 is winning ) Ra8 5. Kc5 and black has to play something like Rg8 and exchange the rook for the pawn.

Hm.. black can play with ideas like this:

5. ... Nb3+ 6. Kc6 Na5+ 7. Kd7 Nc4 (with a night check on b6 if white promotes).
