I would like to offer you a series of tactics problems based on my own games. Today we will consider an interesting kingside attack with lots of sacrifices. I hope that you will be excited by finding the correct way to tackle the chess position.

White to play and win. Press "More" for the solution.

Natalia thank you for sharing this game of yours with us, it is very artistic. I never would have suspected that the move 14....e5?? is bad. You sure have a wonderful understanding of chess. Do you study tactics every day? 
Thanks :grin
