What a nice sacrifice!

Do you always pay your attention to a possible sacrifice which due to zugzwang brings you to victory in a chess game?

I usually do as I did it at the New Year eve...

The sacrifice 19. ... ? (it is the puzzle) which was inevitably taken by the White side of the board had brought the game to the lost White Queen 23. ... Rxd2+ and then to a checkmate. White mercifully resigned at the 29th move.





Try to solve this puzzling position for the Black's benefit. Good luck!
