But as black didn't go this route, there isn't much I can really say about this and whether it is wrong or right...

Bf8 is pinned and doubled, with mate threats.

Nov-25-16  stacase: Why isn't this a Sunday puzzle? I got the first move because the Bishop had nowhere productive to go.
Nov-25-16  ehins: Could someone please tell me what yesterday's puzzle and what colour to move at which move number Thanks

I thought this was the Emms - Arkell game, from Scarboro (British ch) 1999 or something like that ... anyway, this is the game

Emms vs Arkell, 1999

It was with white to move after black played 22 .. e:d5 (I might have the move number wrong, but it was definitely after black captured .. e:d5 opening the king's file).

Pretty sure that's correct, there are some nice touches in this one.

21. Rxf7, 22. Bxg6, 23. Nxd5, 24. Rxe6+. Easy.

Nov-25-16  ehins: Thanks muttley101 for the information
Nov-25-16  morfishine: <21.Nxd5>
Nov-25-16  Ariogermano: Good game!
Nov-25-16  patzer2: Knowing it was a difficult Friday puzzle, I easily found the first two moves of the solution with 21. Bxg6 Rxg6 22. Nxd5 (+3.21 @ 27 depth, Stockfish 7).

The continuation after 22...Nf5 23. Rh8+ (+13.81 @ 33 depth, Stockfish 030116) was also pretty obvious to me.

However, the follow-up is much more difficult if Black deviates from the game continuation with 21...fxg6 or 22...Ba4, as the following analysis with Deep Fritz 15 illustrates:

<21. Bxg6 Rxg6>

[21...fxg6 22. Nxd5 Nf5 23. Nc7+ Kd8 24. Qc3 e5 25. Rxe5 Rc8 26.Rhxe7 Rxc7 27. Rxf5 gxf5 28. Bxc7+ Kxc7 29. b4 Kd8 30. Qf6 Kc8 31. Qd6 Nb3+ 32. cxb3 Rd8 33. Nh3 a5 34. g6 axb4 35. Qxb4 Qa6 36. g7 Qf6 37. Kb1 Bc6 38. Nf4 Be4+ 39. Ka2 Qc6 40. Qc4 Kb8 41. g8=Q (+7.89 @ 20 depth)]

<22. Nxd5 Nf5>

(22...Ba4 23. Nc7+ Kd7 24. Rd1 Rag8 25. Rxf7 Kc8 26. Rxe7 Bxc2 27. Rxd4 Nb3+ 28. Kxc2 Nxd4+ 29. Kd1 Qc5 30. Qc3 Qxc3 31. bxc3 Nc6 32. Rf7 e5 33. Be3 Rd6+ 34. Kc2 Rd7 35. Rxd7 Kxd7 36. Nd5 Ke6 37. c4 Rc8 38. Kd3 Kf5 39. Ne2 b5 40. Ng3+ Ke6 41. Nb6 bxc4+ 42. Nxc4 (+2.87 @ 21 depth)]

<23. Rh8+ Bf8 24. Nc7+ Ke7 25. Bd6+> Black resigns in lieu of 25...Kd8 26. Rxf8+ Be8 27. Nxe8 (mate-in-16, Deep Fritz 15 @ 21 depth).

P.S.: For a Black improvement, instead of 20...Bd7? allowing 21. Bxg6 (+1.99 @ 21 depth, Deep Fritz 15), the second player can hold it level with 20...Nxd3+ 21. Qxd3 Nf5 = (-0.25 @ 33 depth, Stockfish 5 SE).

  agb2002: White is one pawn down.

Back threatens Nxd3+.

White has Nxd5, Bd6, Be5, Bxg6. I haven't found the time for this puzzle today. I'd probably play 21.Nxd5.
