How would you find such a combination?

I think you have to notice that after 1. Bf6 gxf6 2. Qh6, White threatens mate and you fill in the details with forcing moves.

Also after 1. Bf6, the Bishop cannot be ignored as 2. Qg5 will follow.

To reach this position perhaps where White looks in a bad way.



1. Bxe3 Nxe3 2. Qxe3 leaves the b1 Rook hanging.

On the previous move gxf5 was met by Qg3 with mating threats.

Perhaps 2. .. Qg5 with the idea of .. Qf4

But even if Black plays a non-threatening move, what can White do?

Is black winning a pawn there? I'd have to calculate 1...Bxc3 2.bxc3 Bxe4 carefully, but it looks like it.

I'm not really sure it qualifies as a tactic, just a routine developing move hitting the Rook on a2 and the pawn on b5. As to whether the pawn on b5 should be taken, that requires a bit of calculation and judgement of the resulting position, since it looks possible for Black to attempt to regain the pawn with .. Rb8. If the pawn cannot be regained, White would just be winning eventually with the two connected passed pawns.

Purely counting the material, White is a piece down. Presumably it can be won back with some tactical line. Qg8 is mate if the Black Queen can be distracted. Perhaps the solution is Rg1 to pin the Bishop followed up with Bd5.

Once material is level, you prefer White because the King is safer.
