As usual, i don't really know what the actual moves being played. But it's fun to analyze it with Fritz. The machine suggest 1.c6! f3!? Black has to bring back his queen for active play. 1...bxc6?? would be a grievous mistake due to white queen check at b4 2.Qb4+! Kg8 3.Qe7 Threatening Qe8++ 3...Bxf5 4.Bxf5 Ne6 (4...Nb7 5.Rd7+-) 5.Bxe6+- 2.Qxf3 Qxe5 3.cxb7 Nxb7 4.Nh6+- 4.Qxb7?! would almost return the winning advantage after 4...Bd5 but white can still fight for the advantage with the queen sacrifiece with 5.Qxa8+! Bxa8 6.Bc4 with attack! 1-0
