    Ah gees! I did the B sac one move too early. Nice play!

    You're right. I missed that the queen on b5 covers d3, so I was planning Nd3+ "winning the queen". Foot in Mouth

    Unless I missed something:  17..Bxf2+? 18.Kxf2 Rxc1 19.Rxc1 Qxc1 20.Qxb4  and Black trades 2 minor pieces for a Rook and Pawn.  I considered 17..Bxf2+ for a long time and came very close to playing it, thinking it was the best I had.  But realized 17..a6 gets the Queen off the diagonal which allows black to later play Nd3+.

    But I agree that after 17..a6, 18.Qxc5 is White's best continuation although he is down in material, losing a Queen for a Rook and Bishop and will also lose a pawn.  That is how the actual game continued.

    17...a6 gives White the chance to play 18. Qxc5 Rxc5 19. Rxc5

    Why not just play 17...Bxf2+ immediately?
