Winning Combinations

 I recently played  and lost a 3minute game against some Belgian.  After the game, I looked back and noticed an amazing tactic that I missed that would have won me the game!  I decided to make a puzzle out of it so go ahead and give her a try. White must find a way to take advantage of the Rook pin on f6.
I ended up analyzing the entire game so if you're interested to see how the position came about, you can follow this open Sicilian Game with my comments thrown in between important moves.

    Queen takes rook is also pretty good. If black recaptures white has a back rank mate with rook to E8
