    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    @Steal: Should I go ahead and start the tourney sign ups, or should I wait for a bit more?

    I'm starting to feel disappointed by your latest choices... You could have done this much earlier with Qg2

    Then it'll depend on his next move. If he moves anything other than the d7 bishop or the f7 pawn, then it'll be mate in 3 with:
    3. Qf7#

    If he moved the f7 pawn... Then you get a free knight kill and probably make him sweat a bit since your pawn is two steps away from becomming a second queen.
    2. Qf3 f5
    3. exf6ep ...

    If he moves his bishop to prevent a Qf7 mate:
    2. Qf3 Bc6
    3. Nf7 ...
    and here you'll have a fork on his queen and rook. Obvious choice would be to save the queen and thus you get a nice Rook and pawn capture (two pawns if you don't mind sacrificing your knight)

    There are other scenarios, but all them involve either getting checkmated or losing a knight or a rook or both. All of which doesn't have many drawbacks to yourself other than possibly losing that one knight which would have more than done its job.

    Anyway, just my two cents.

    Edit: Of course, if he then puts his pawn h pawn up to attack your knight g5, then the plan is gone, but if you tempo it then with g5, then you can end up with a nice bishop pin while taking a pawn and a knight for a pawn and a knight.
