Kibitzer's Corner
May-08-05  BadTemper: What would happen after 20...Bxd6 ?
May-08-05  mynameisrandy: Good question. I see that black cannot take the rook and the bishop because of the line:

21.Qxd6 cxd5 22.Bg5 Kf7 23. Qe7+ Kg8 24.Bh6 d6 25.Qe8#

However, if black moves 21... h6 instead of cxd5 I see no winning continuation for white. Hm...
