    Well I've made one of the silliest mistakes for a chess player to make, in other words, not play for a while properly.

    It seems now i've even gone as far as to forget one of the easiest to remember lines in the BDG.



    White has just played the move Ne5

    I remember that white has a definite win from this position, or at least a big material advantage, but everytime i go through this position agains the computer i seem to always end up having a queen and a piece vs two rooks and a piece, a pawn down, and having no attack to really compensate for it

    who can help me out here with the analysis?

    EDIT: also i'm tired and i just realised i spelt the name wrong

    The line that i usually follow is:

    1. ... Nxe5
    2. Rxf6 Qxd4+
    3. Kh1 Bxg2+
    4. Kxg2 Qg4+
    5. Kh1 Nxd3
    6. Rg1 Qxg1
    7. Kxg1 Bxf6
    8. either cxd or Qxf6

    I'm sure that i used to be able to play this position out for a direct win, but i've forgotten.
    Help me please!!

    EDIT: ending position

    6. cxd3 is definitely better. Black cannot really avoid queen loss anyway due to the mate threats.

    6. cxd3 Bxf6 7. Qxf6 Rad8 or Rfd8 and here 8. Rg1 Qxg1+ 9. Kxg1 when black is lost after Ne4 next move followed by Qg5 or Qh6 and Ng5/Nf6(+).
