This looks tricky. What if 18...Nd2! 19. Rxd2 a5 20. Qc5 Rc8 21. Qxe5+ Qe6, so that now 22. Qxg7 does not work due to 22...Qe1#, how does White beat this defense?

Aug-13-05  psmith: <beatgiant> 22. Qb5+ Qc6 23. Qe2+ Qe6 24. Qd1 followed by Re2 winning the Black Queen. (Found using's free analysis engine.)
