  Penguincw: OTB, I would've taken the queen in half a heartbeat. However, just to be sure, I used the <cg> computer to help me out. At first, I thought it was broken because it said <white> is winning, but looking further down the line, it has a point.

Ex. 15...Bxa6 16.Bxf8 Bxd3 17.Bd6 Qb7 18.exd5 Qxb2 19.Rd1 Na7 20.Bxb8 Qxb8.

White has 2 rooks, a knight and 2 pawns vs. a queen and bishop.

Mar-18-15  Nerwal: She didn't take the queen because it's trapped anyway and variations are quite complicated (it's not easy to assess what happens after 15...♗xa6 16.♗xf8 ♗xd3 17.♗d6 ♕b7, and there are other options). There are also lines where the computer would give Black a clear advantage, but the position could be difficult to handle for a human (like a 2 pieces + pawns vs Q scenario)
