r4k1N /pbpp3p/6B1/1p2p1Q1/3q4/6K1/PP1P1n1P/RNB5 b - - 0 18

<18...Ne4+! (looks like fork, but if not taken leads to mate) 19.Bxe4 Qg1+! 20.Kh4 Qxh2 21.Kg4 Bxe4 22.Qf6+ Kg8 23.Nf7 Bg6 24.Qxe5 Qg2+ 25.Kh4 Qh1 etc (followed by 26...Rf8 or 25...Kxf7 immediately is also playable)>

I believe all of this long line is essentially forced.
