2007-04-12 23:55:42notyetagm14673 ... e3! is a nasty tactical surprise for White on the theme of CLEARANCE. Black opens the h1-a8 diagonal with GAIN OF TIME on the White d2-queen so that he can capture the undefended White b7-bishop with check. Without the check, Black could not capture the White bishop because of his WEAK BACK RANK (3 ... QxBb7?? 4 Qd8+ Bf8 5 QxBf8#). 
2007-04-18 14:26:30Prufrock1436Thanks for the explanation. The last move caught me out on the back rank as I didn't see the problems because of time
