An amazing combination
I have an Alburt and Palatnik book on Chess Tactics for the tournament player. This is a position from Palatnik game against Kasparov(white) . White to Move played Bishop x g5 . This combination is about 14 moves deep all forced . Those who are adventuresome should attempt to calculate this before looking at the game score below.
