The Pinwheel Fork

 Courtesy of my opponent spotting my Plan A, but not my Plan B, I managed to produce a 'Pinwheel Fork' for probably the first time in my career. Having pushed 16.e4, my opponent Ian Hosking, assumed I was looking for some complicated tactic based on attacking f7 and e6. He decided to deal with it my taking on d4, assuming that my next move would be to capture the bishop on f5. Instead the knight landed on c6, and thanks to the pinned b pawn, I successfully attacked the queen, both rooks and a bishop, all of which were undefended!
