1.Nxe7+ Bxe7 2.Rxd6 Bxd6 3.Nf5 and wins the bishop due to the threats on d6 and e7.

Great analysis! There is an interesting continuation:

1.Nxe7+ Bxe7 2.Rxd6 Bxd6 3.Nf5 Rd8 4.Rxd6 Rxd6 5.Ne7+ Kh7 6.Nxg6

Yes 3. ...Rd8 doesn't work, that's why he's losing the bishop. I guess best would be 3. ... Kh7 3. ...Re8 or something but it just seems like black is lost here. He's got 2 pieces for the R+P which in some position might be ok but here white is just crushingly active and black's queen is in a very bad spot.

Easy enough. My analysis exactly.

White text on white, neat idea to hide the answer until you have solved it.
