  lostemperor: I think white's threat is Ne6, capturing the queen. So black must take 10...Kxf7 after which still 11.Ne6 Kxe6 12.Qd5 Kf5 13.e6 Kf6 14.Bd4 mates if I have the position correct in my head still.

  Sneaky: That's right, Black is losing his queen (or getting mated trying to prevent it). This game is a copy of this famous game Fischer vs Reshevsky, 1958

In the original game it went 10...Rxf7 11.Ne6 dxe6
12. Qxd8 and Reshevsky, minus a queen, went on to lose many moves later.

Aug-19-04  Peter Trujillo: yeah. you're right. after 10...kxf7 11.ne6 black looses his queen or gets in a mating net.
Aug-20-04  misguidedaggression: That's a switch: Black can save his Queen by sacing the King.
Aug-20-04  hollowone: So I suppose the lesson for black here is, if you're going to bother threatening the bishop on b3, take the frickin' piece before retreating your other knight.
Aug-20-04  mack: Wait for it - Game of the Day, "Bah Humburg"
Feb-18-08  TurtleKaze: No... taking the b3 Bishop loses too. Just not as spectacularly.

Not for me, it's par for the course.
