Nov-07-10  Xeroxx: Wooo NF6!! what a totally awesome move.
Jul-14-12  myusernameis: 23 Nf6!!

took me a while to figure it out: after pawn takes knight, here comes 24 Qh6! with mate at g7;

but then I thought black can play 24 Rg4! to block g-line; upon which white can play exf6!

even if black playes Rg6! white can simply play fxe7, with mate to follow

I hope I didn't miss anything

Jul-14-12  myusernameis: it would make a good puzzle though
