Good so far, but black has several ways of responding from here and white is challenged to find the BEST way to deal with each.

For instance

3.  . . .   Bxe2+  4.KJxe2 (no alternative on that one)

3.  . . .   Bxh5,    I would play, Bxh8,  would I be right?

In fact, almost any other move by black other than moving his h8 Rook,  I would still move 4.Bxh8.

If Black moved  3.  . . .   Rg8,   I would move 4. Rxb2.   Would I be right?

---------------

Does Black have a "Best" move at this point?

I think I would move 3.  . . .   Rg8.

After 3...Bxh5, I think 4. Bxh8 is a mistake. That puts White up an exchange after 4... Bxe2+ 5. Kxe2 Bd5.

Better is 3...Bxh5 4. Bxh5. Then Black loses a whole bishop after 4...Rg8 5. Rxb2.
