  wwall: After 16.c4, instead of 16...Bd6, which loses the e6 pawn and the center, perhaps better is 16...Qe8 to protect the pawn, and if 17...cxd5+, then 17...exd5.

After 17.Qxe6, if 17...Re8, then 18.cxd5+ Kb6 (18...Kb7 19.Rb1+ Bb5 20.Rxb5+) 19.a5+ Kb5 20.Bf1+ Kb4 21.Ba3+ Kc3 22.Rc1+ Kxd4 23.Bb2 mate.

After 17...Rb8, White could have played 18.Bxd5+ Nxd5 19.Qxd5+ Kd7 (19...Kb6 20.a5 mate) 20.Qf5+ Ke8 21.O-O for the win.
