I was sitting next to Oliver Picken, a New Zealand teenager and chess player, during a tournament in Hamilton, NZ, and saw this beauty at the end of his game.

Computer suggests the capture of the bishop (that's where the arrow points), and usually young players like to capture pieces, but Oliver played Rc7+, after which Black resigned. Black has to either lose the queen with a fork on e8 or get mated on next move. Stockfish seems to be less brilliant than a human here! It would win against queen+knight in 11 moves, anyway, but a human needed only one by a brilliancy :)
