Nov-06-09  WhiteRook48: 21...Qxe7
Mar-30-10  themindset: 21...Qxe7 loses to 22.Rg8+ Qf8 23. Rxf8+ Kxf8 24 e7+!! Ke8 25 Nf5!!

Now the knight is threatening to fork the bishop. If the king moves, the promoted pawn will force the king back to the e8 square after the exchange of rooks.

Then white is a clear Knight up with some pawns to boot.
