    a) 1. Nxh7 Nxh7; 2. Qh5 Nf6; 3. Qxg6 Bd5 (the only defence); 4. exd5 fxg6; 5. d6+ Rf7; 6. Bxf7+ Kf8; 7. Ne6+ Kxf7; 8. Nxd8+ Rxf8; and White is an exchange and two pawns up.
    a1) If 4. … Qd6; 5. Bxf7+ Rxf7; 6. Rh8+ Kxh8; 7. Nxf7+ Kg8; 8. Nxd6.

    There is another way.
    b) 1. Nxh7 Nxh7; 2. Rxh7 Kxh7; 3. Qh5+ Kg8; 4. Rh1 Re8; 6. Qxg6 Bd5; 7. Bxd5 Qxd5; 8. Qxg7+.
    b1) If 6. … Qe7; 7. Bg5.
    b2) If 6. … Qf6; 7. Bxf7+ Qxf7; 8. Rh8+ Kxh8; 9. Qxf7 with a queen and two pawns for two rooks.
    b3) If 7. … Kf8; 8. Bxe8 Rxe8; 9. Rh8+ Bxh8; 10. Bh6+ winning the queen however Black replies.

    1. Matthew Barlow says :

      a) needs to be amended. 1. Nxh7 Nxh7; 2. Qh5 Nf6; 3. Qxg6 b5; 4. Bh6 Ne8; 5. Bxg7 Nxg7; 6. Qh7 mate.
