A Black Win by Q-N-R Combination Checkmate

This morning I won a correspondence chess club tournament game with a Queen-Rook-Knight combination checkmate. The position of pieces at game's end is pictured at the top of this post, and our full move record is below:

1. e4 Nc6 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 e5 4. d5 Nd4 5. Nxd4 exd4 6. Qxd4 Nf6 7. Bg5 Be7 8. Bb5+ Bd7 9. Nc3 O-O 10. O-O c5 11. Qe3 Ng4 12. Qd2 Bxg5 13. Qe2 Bf6 14. h3 Ne5 15. a4 Bxb5 16. Nxb5 a6 17. Nc3 c4 18.

And the adventure continues.
