    this was a recent 10min game i played here in which i allowed my opponent to "trap" my bishop to create a mating attack, please comment if you see a decent defence to this or comment anyway if you think moves were bad or just comment :)

    That seems right. I was the victim of tactics like 14. Bxh7+ in a number of live chess games myself. Usually the result was fatal.

    I'm guessing the continuation is the standard greek gift continuation:

    Black probably missed Qg7 resource and thought he is getting mated.

    Either way, how about 21... Qg7 22. Qh5+ Kg8 23. Nxe6, intending 23. Rg3?

    Well I see now that white has 3 extra connected passed pawns. So in any case that he "cashes in" he has an easily won game (though, around his rating level anything can happen).

    Thanks Luigi, didn't actually calculate, was doing it from memory of the pattern. Qd3 looks strong and useful to know, cheers.
