Kibitzer's Corner
May-21-12  e4 resigns: I assume that Rxf6 was more intuition rather than long term planning. It becomes powerful after Ne4!

Qh4: perhaps black could play Kg7, but Nxf6 maybe? Or Qg6 possibly(although that discover will make black have to be careful for every move.

g3! Taking away the queen's usefulness!

Qh3 (pretty much forced)

Qd4 throwing another piece in the party with the threat of Nh5+ Qg7#

Nd7! Pretty!
