Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-17-06  SJP: White wins at least a rook and has a strong attack.

If my analysis is correct (I feel I've missed something), nothing can really defend against the threat of 18. Qxf7+ Kd6 19.Be3+ Kc6 (19...Ke5 20. Bf4#) 20. Rxd8 and then a choice of 21. Qe8+ Bd7 22. Qxd7# or 21. Qd5#, with Black unable to defend both threats. To the position at the resignation, 17...Rf8 loses to 18. Bb4+ Kf6 19. Bxf8.
