Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-03-04  patzer2: White's 15. Bxg7! is the solution to number 4918 in Laszlo Polgar's 1994 "Chess, 5334 Problems, Combinations and Games."

If 15...Kxg7, then White wins with 16. Qg5+ Kf7 17. Bh5+ .

  OBIT: If 14...gxh6, it looks like the win is 15. Rxf8+ Qxf8 (or 15...Kxf8 16. Rf1+ Kg8, reaching the same position) 16. Rf1 Qd8 17. Bf3! and Black has no defense to Bd5+.
