  wwall: Not 15.hxg4? Qh2+ 16.Kf1 Qh1+ 17.Ke2 Bxg4+ 18.Kd3 Qxg2 19.Rg1 Bf5+ 20.Ke2 Rae8+ 21.Be3 Rxe3+ 22.Kxe3 Qe4+ 23.Kd2 Bf4 mate

15...Re8?? is bad. Best may be 15...Bh2+ (or 15...Nxe3) 15.Kf1 Bf4 or 15...Nxe3.

16.Bxf7+? doesn't work. Best is 16.Qf3, threatening 17.Qxa8 and 17.Qxf7+

After 17.Qf3+, not 17...Kg8? 18.Qxa8. Not 17...Ke7? or 17...Ke6 as 18.Bg5+ wins the Black Queen.

18.Qxa8?? is the losing move. Better is 18.hxg4 Bxg4 19.g3 Bxf3 20.gxh4 and 21.Nd2.

18...Rxe3 wins. If 18...Nxe3, then 19.Qc6

After 18...Rxe3, if 19.Rxe3 (19.fxe3 Qxe1 mate), then 19...Qxf2+ 20.Kh1 Qf1 mate.

19...Qxf2+! wins. If 19...Nxf2, then 20.Rxf2 Re1+ 21.Rf1 and White can hold.

After 21...Bh2+ 22.Kh1 Rxf1 mate.
