10.Bxf7+!! This bishop sacrifice while the White queen and knight hang is one of better bishop sacrifices that I've seen, although there are many examples to be found in the legends of chess. Taking the pawn DECOYed (a.k.a. attraction/magnet sacrifice) the Black king into the coming discovered double check to cure White's troubles, and Mr. Wall did the rest in short order as he so often does.

Black was better off declining the offer by 10...Kd7. Checks will follow as the monarch is forced to the queenside, but there's no quick mate on that side.
