22. Qg5#

Of course, Black can play 21... Qe3, then
White simply captures with 22. fxe3 Bxe3+ 23 Qxe3 and its all over.

Nov-26-06  Mostolesdude: " No matter what Black plays White plays.... 22. Qg5# "

Black can play 21...Ng6 to "block" the queen's check. Then, 22.Qh6 and its mate in one. I think black resigned because it can't prevent 22.Qh6 without losing his own queen in the process.

Jun-10-12  e4 resigns: The Evans is an automatic win in Blackburn or Morphy's hands. Lol. And I really like Nf6!
Aug-21-13  Goldrider: Black can stop immediate mate with 21. ... Qxd3 22. Qxd3 but now White has a Rook, Bishop, and Queen compared to Black's two Rooks, Knight, and Bishop, as well as the initiative and a strong attack on the Black King

One possible continuation: 22. ... Rd8 23. Qa3 Ng6 24. Qc1 Bxf2 (to delay the mating attack) 25. Kxf2 c5 26. Qh6 Rd2+ (more futile stalling) 27. Qxd2 Nxe5 28. Rg1+ Ng6 29. Qh6 Re8 [or any other move] 30. Qg7#
