  fredthebear: Oh, yeah!! This double bishop sacrifice offer is one for the books. The bold 18.Bg7 is a "Here, take me!" clearance sacrifice offer that if accepted allows Qh6+ w/mate to follow.

If play had continued 21...gxRh5 then 22.Be5 clears the mating square on g7, and Black will have to scuttle material to delay sinking.
