Tartakower: <From a technical point of view the text presents an interesting example of double check to the queen!> ('Shakhmatny Listok', 10/1927)

Apr-09-12  syracrophy: After 18.exd6!!, Black's ♕xe1+ was not a "free" option - it was forced!

The ♕ is being attacked twice <!> so here 18...♘e4 doesn't work. 18...♕f8 loses the ♕ outright to 19.dxc7+, and the last option, 18...♕g7 not only loses the exchange - but TWO exchanges! 19.dxc7+ ♔c8 <not 19...Kxc7? 20.Ne6+ wins the queen> 20.cxd8(♕)+ ♖xd8 <again the king in unable to recapture! The deadly forks!> 21.♘e6

Convincing, isn't it?
