  fredthebear: The exchange sacrifice ends it -- because the recapturing bishop is unprotected. The follow-up is 27.BxRc3 Qc5+ and 28...QxBc3. Thus, Black gets a 2-for-1.

The queen check and simultaneous fork is the most underrated tactic in chess, IMHO. Also keep in mind, the last recapturing unit in a trade sequence is often unprotected and vulnerable to tactics.
