Sep-02-16  ketchuplover: How about 20.Bxg6 ?
Sep-02-16  kamagong24: maybe black can just ignore the sac and play 20... Bf6, black may have enough counterplay since white's K is still in the center

21. Bxh7+ Kxh7
22. Qf4 or e4+ Kh8
23. Bc5 Nxc5

engines will have the better solution

Sep-03-16  GoldMedallist: yes 20.Bxg6 will make complications... please post an engine analysis here

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Was Black's Exchange sacrifice really sound, or did he just want to stir up trouble?
Sep-16-16  enochmeta: Why not 14... Nxe5 ?
Sep-16-16  enochmeta: 24... Ra6 was probably sounder but the exchange didn't lose too much of the advantage
