Sac, but be careful

    This is from a game that just finished today.  I do not post this to rub it in to my opponent, who was very gracious, but because I think it makes for a neat tactical problem.  Please tell me what you think:

    Awesome, I've been trying but I can't find any promising reply for white after Qxd3.

    I wonder how some people can calculate so deeply.

    What happens after 18. Re3? Haven't analysed carefully but seems to me White can still hold.

    ^ 18. Re3 Rxe4 if white takes the queen ...Re1# otherwise ...Qg2#

    Thank you for the feedback!  As for the calculation...it was a correspondence game, so I had some time to explore ideas once I thought of the mate threat.  It took a bit to see the Nf6+ attempt and to see a way to still get a mate.

    Qf1# is a threat too.

     Nice, I didnt see quickly the pawn on f6. Very nice tactic. What was the time ratio?

    3 days/move was the time control for this game.
