Sep-27-06  GaryK51188: Night forks after bxp and pxqp+
Jan-08-07  cuendillar: The prettiest win here should be
15.e6 d6 16.exf7+ Kd7 17.Re7+! Kxe7 18.Qxc7+ Kf6 19.Qxd6+ Kf5 20.Qe5+ Kg4 21.h3#

Aug-13-10  culei: What does white do after 15... BxB
16 e6xd7 Kd2 ( only move, kf1 Re8#
17 re7+ ( and wathever black does)
18 Qxc7#

And what about 15... Fxe6
16 BxB NxB
17 Qxc7 nc5
18 ne5 (Bxc5 bxc5 rxe6 is also good but delays the win 18... Qf6
19 Bxc5 bxc5
20 Qxd7 kf8
21 Qb7 (wins because there is a fork Nd7
22 nd7 RxN
23 Qxd7 Qe7 ( now comes the beauty)
24 Qf8 Qe8
25 Qxc5 qd7
26 qc8 qd8
27 qxq (qxe6 also wins but this is better)
27... KxQ
28 Rb1 ( rxe6 also wins)
28... Doesn't matter if black let's him white plays Rb8 So he has to play the king to the 7th rank and after Rb7 thea pawn falls and also the black king

This is what I taught if you havesomething better please tell me

If 15...BxBd5 16.exd7+ Kxd7 17.Re7+ Kc8 (forced) 18.Qxc7#.

If 15...fxe6 16.BxBb7 NxBb7 16.Qx7 is simple and good, with pressure.

The White e-pawn is an excellent weapon!
