Oct-21-08  I Offer You A Resign: 12 ... c6?? was the blunder, leaving the queen protecting both f7 and d6. Ouch - another tactic, overworked piece.
Mar-26-09  mandy64: 12..c6 was forced because of the powerful 13.Nd5 threat. Other tries, 13..Nxc4 or 13..Be6, still lose quickly.

  Penguincw: 14.Qxf7+ was a nice shot. If 14...Qxf7 15.Nxd6+ Ke7 [15...Kf8 16.Rxf7# 1-0 see diagram 2) or 15...Kd8 16.Nxf7+ and the rook is loss (see diagram 3)] and the rook is loss (see digram 1).
