Everyday's Chess III: Nice Position

This evening I played a game against my Mephisto Atlanta using its passive book and after the 26th move of White (Atlanta, level 5 seconds per move) 26. Kf1 the position above appeared.

In the opening I had won a pawn and thought to myself, oh look, my darling is getting weaker and making mistakes and thought the reason for the weakness was the passive book. Only three moves later, however, the Atlanta had won two pawns back and was now one pawn ahead. 

After the 26th move of White we had the position above on the board. I wanted to win  the pawn a4 and moved my rook down to c1, check.

My opponent replied: 27. Ke2. Then I went forth with 27. ... Nc4 planning to set then my rook on a1. Immediately, and that is it what I like so much, the Atlanta moved his rook on b5, 28. Rb5. I like this move.

He checked out at once that after 28. ... Ra1 29. Bxc4 dxc4 30. Rxa5 he would be first and catch the pawn a5 instead of me catching pawn a4.

26. Kf1 Rc1+
27. Ke2 Nc4
28. Rb5! (instantly, very good, I like it!) Ra1
29. Bxc4 dxc4
30. Rxa1 ...

I just wanted to share this nice trick with you. What do you think of that? How does your chess computer react?
