Bxd3!+..King moves lose the queen and leave white with a decisive material advantage...Qxd3?? White will either lose the queen, get mated, or lose the queen and get mated. Sample line: Bxd3!+ Qxd3?? Rg2+ Kd1 Qg1+ Qf1 Qxf1#That leaves interposing with the rook:..Rxd3 Qc4+! Kd2?? Qc1#..Rxd3 Qc4+! Rc3 Qxe2+ -+

-Qf3ch,Rc3-Qa4ch,Kd2-Bh3..black should be winning at this point yes?
It seems that the quiet 1...Bh3 creates threats that White can't handle. Best seems2. Qd2 Rg23. Be2, but now Black has a killer3. ...Bf5+Now if 4. Kd1 Rg1+ 5. Bf1 R:f1+ 6.

Has it really been 5 years? For those who don't remember this, this was from the Anand-Kramnik match from 2008. Anand was black.
Kramnik-AnandAnand failed to find the mating line (long anyway if I remember correctly), but won game a few moves later.
Was it really from Anand Kramnik match. I am proud that if Anand ever wished me " Many many Happy returns of the day",I could say "Wish you the same".
