Two loose pieces drop off

There was a nice example of John Nunn's dictum "loose pieces drop off" yesterday in the German Championship. As you can see in the diagram with White to move there are both black rooks being "loose" (= not protected). A nice chance for White to search for some smart move. This happened with 25.Qd3! and White forked both rooks. Black resigned in Buhmann - Meier (Saarbrucken 2009).
