I was watching a fascinating game online earlier today. GM Daniel Naroditsky had the White pieces.

The following position was reachedĀ  after his opponent had played …. Qg6

can you find the tactic that wins at least a piece?

White to moveĀ 



Qxg6 wins as the best defence leaves White a piece up, so 1.Qxg6 fxg6 2. Rxh7+ Kxh7 3. Rd3 (with the threat of Rh3mate) Bxf2+ 4. Kh1 Bh4 5. Rh3 winning a piece. Note that the two White Bishops prevent Rook checks on the f1 and c1 squares
