Better (instead of 17...c4) according to Fritz, is just 17...Bxg5 18. Bxg5 Bh3 19. Qe4 f6 20. Bd2 g5!? 21. Bg6 Bxf1 22. Rxf1 f5. Looks a little loose for Black, but Fritz is usually right!

  fredthebear: If instead 22.Bf4 hitting the loose Black knight on guard duty allows 22...Qh3 and she will deliver mate with the support of either Bf3/Nf3.
