  GrahamClayton: If 12.♗g7 ♘e3!, with the twin threats of 13.fe3 ♕g3+ or 13.♕d2 ♘g2+.

24.♘c5 loses a piece after 24...♗d4.

26.♕f4 leads to a pretty mate after 26...♗e5#:

White resigns due to the threat of losing a 4th pawn with due to either 27...♘g4 or 27...♘d3+.

  Gilmoy: <GrahamClayton: 27..♘d3+> I think even stronger is 27.(Qe2,Rh3) Rxd3 and the Ne3 is toast: it's pinned to the hidden-triple on Nf3, and 28..Rxe3 29..Nxg4+ steals any recapture. For example:

27.Rh3 Rxd3 28.Re1? Rxe3 29.Rxe3 Nxg4+ 30.Ke2 Qxf3+ 31.Kd1 Rd8+ 32.Kc2

32..Qxc3+ <fork you buddy>, up B+5P (not counting b7 if White wants it).

Or 27.Qg2 <to defend Bf3 and g4 simultaneously> Rxd3 28.Rbe1 Bc6 29.Qg3 g5 and White must drop something.
