Apr-18-15  SpiritedReposte: That's how you expose the enemy king!

Is there a forced mate in the final position or did Black resign because of losing his queen, exposed king, too much pressure etc?

Apr-18-15  Tullius: I don't see a forced mate, but White is winning anyway. After 25...Kg8 26.Nxc5 Black cannot recapture because his Rook is also hanging. After 26...Re8 27.Nxe4 Rxe4 Black has only two minor pieces for the Queen and is four pawns down.
