    White just played Bd2, leaving his Q in the crosshairs of a battery. How does Black make him pay for it?

    Best I can find is 1…Nb4 2. Qb3 (Qd1 Nxd3#; Qa5 Nxd3+ 3. Kd1 Nxf2+ & 4…Nxh1) Ba4 3. Qxa4 Nxd3+ 4. Kd1 Nxf2+ 5. Ke1 Nxh1, but it looks unclear because the Black Knight is stuck in the corner, so it's just 2 light pieces for a R and a P. Am I missing something?

    Yes. You had a better continuation near the end.

    Oh, yeah, obvious when I put it on a board: Nxb2+ instead of Nxf2+ wins the Queen. Nice combination, not so easy to see.

    Nice alright. Is this a composition or from a real game?

    It's from a game.
