White to play the GM level move : chess

Thought this was an interesting tactic from an online game I played. It’s a little unorthodox for these tactics/puzzles because instead of a clever move winning immediately it’s a clever move that just collapses black’s position inexorably regardless of how black plays it out.


So apparently Ne6 is extremely strong… If black takes with the pawn fxe6 then after dxe6 black either has to give the bishop up or allow e7 forking queen and rook. The correct reply by black is just capturing with the bishop, but the position is still collapsing regardless
