  tpstar: When you see a good move (15. Rg8+), look for a better one (15. Rxc5!) because Black can't defend the Be4 (15 ... Qg6) without losing the Rh8 (16. Rc8+). Black couldn't try the Rook for 2 pieces line with 16 ... Bc6 because 17. Rxc6 Nxc6 18. Qxc6+ Ke7 19. Bg5+ f6 20. Qb7+ wins, or else 16 ... Nc6 17. Qxe4 (18. Rxc6?! Bxf3! complicates mattters) bxc5 18. Qxc6+ again.
