  patzer2: White's 23. Rxf6! initiaties a pretty Knight Fork combination. Thanks for pointing it out <Iron Maiden>.

If 21...Be7, then the Knight Fork and the pin comes into play with 22. Nxf6+! forking the King and Queen (note that the Knight cannot be captured because of the pin).

Black resigns since 22. Qa5+! Kc8 (22...Ke8 23. Nxf6) 23. Nb6+ results in a decisive Knight Fork.
