Sometimes when I reach a winning position I switch the board around and I let my students finish me off. It's frightening to see how much pleasure they derive from seeing coach Vas go down in flames. But it's good training because in tournaments players often fail to bring the full point home.
White to play
Almost anything wins here because White is up a Queen. (Black got his Queen trapped earlier.)
So, full marks for seeing and playing 1.Qxf5!!+ gxf5 2. gxh6 +- One mark for bravery and one for seeing that the White pawn will Queen. And it took him seconds, not a long think. I love it.
