Amazing Position

This position is one that would have occured in a game between a friend of mine and an FM but my friend missed this continuation....but I cannot blame him. Fritz 6 and Rybka 2.2 also miss the winning line even after letting them think for a while. I was messing around analyzing his game and I found the winning continuation. Can anybody else find it?

This position occured after white played e4 and black responded with ...b4. What is the winning continuation?

    That is a pretty neat line...very unnatural and obviously a computer line. White offers up a piece and Black apparently has to decline it...I suppose it is correct once you've seen the end, but that is many moves away and very difficult for a human to see

    I guess when i say outright win I mean that White is left with an overwhelming advantage...not that it ends in mate or winning a queen...but White ends up with an easily winning advantage.

    With what line?

    1. Bxd6! Qxd6

    2. e5 Bh6+

    3. Kb1 Qd7

    4. exf6 bxc3

    5. d5! with Black's position collapsing...

    But why? You need to see the whole variation for it to work:

    1. Bxd6! Qxd6

    2. e5 Bh6+ ( to prevent the attack on the bishop after exf6)

    3. Kb1

    now analyze white's options after each of Black's replies here

    1.Bxd6 followed by 2.e5?

    Yes, there is an outright win here...it's not 1. Bxe6 though....your computer won't see it for a while because it is a pretty long variation.

    Are you sure there is an outright win? 1.Bxe6 seems tempting...
