  hesyrett: <sneaky pete> 13.Qg3 does parry the mate, but just barely!  There are cute tactics after 13...Bg4+.  First of all, 14.Qxg4 Qe1#.  Then 14.Qe2 Qxf1+ 15.Qe1 Bxe2# (or 15.Rxf1 Rxf1#).  Finally, 14.Be2 Qf1+ 15.Qe1!! (not 15.Rxf1 Rxf1+ 16.Qe1 Rxe1#) and the best Black can do seems to be 15...Bxe1 16.Rxf1 Rxf1 17.Bxg4 Ba5+ 18.Ke2 and White escapes.

  hesyrett: Whoops!  The R on f1 hangs after 17.Bxg4 so Black doesn't even have a spite check, as 17...Ba5+ is met by 18.Qxf1.
