Default A pretty combination

Here's a position from one of my games. White has a winning
combination, can you see what it is?

3rk2r/pp2bppp/2n5/1B1p4/2pP4/2P2P2/P1P2P1P/R1B1R1K1 w k - 0 15

And no, I didn't see it myself, and lost

It took me a little while to see it also, but it is a nice one. Thanks for posting it.

That is FEN notation. There is a good descripton at
http://www.chessville.com/Reference_...escription.htm

Here is the position in ICS-style ASCII (view with a fixed-width font),
white to move:

+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
8 | | | | *R| *K| | | *R|
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
7 | *P| *P| | | *B| *P| *P| *P|
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
6 | | | *N| | | | | |
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
5 | | B | | *P| | | | |
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
4 | | | *P| P | | | | |
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
3 | | | P | | | P | | |
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
2 | P | | P | | | P | | P |
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
1 | R | | B | | R | | K | |
