1. Be5black must give up the piece because 1... Bxe5, 2. Qd8 and mate.aside: candidates round 10: which games will have a result? rank your choices! http://goo.gl/6SQwc

Black's backrank is weak, only protection against Qd8# is the c7 bishop. So therefore:1. Be5! Nbd5 (anything better?)2. Bxc7! (more direct than cxd5 I think) Nxc7 (anything better?)3. Qd8+ Nce84. Bxe8 g6 (Nxe8? Qxe8#)5. b6! Qb1+6. Kh2 Nxe87. Qxe8+ Kg78. Qb5!!Plenty variations I think, but is there something better for black?
1. Ba1-e5, intending an eventual back rank mate.--br
1. Be5! wins (threatening 2. Qd8+ and then checkmate). Black has to give up his Bishop to avoid checkmate.
