1 star because it's aborted before actual 'pointe'.

1693.7 - slow but steady :)

I think I calculated all the relevant lines, but simply couldn't evaluate the resulting positions correctly and made the wrong choice (exf5). It's most frustrating when it is your judgement that fails. It makes your guts hurt.

Or, "snap-forward".

@floreatdunum said it best. But GB rates only on difficulty.

After Rxc6 dxc6, axb4 wins.

I fell for this one in a tournament. And missed it here too :(

Seems easy for the rating. I guess @chessisajedrez's move shows why it's higher than expected.

Nice standard 3-move attack ("Greek gift"?)

Order matters because, primarily, on 1...exd5 2.Qxd5+ wins easily for White.

Interesting. One more move (to find 2...Qxe5 in order to save the queen) is better.

I remember liking that Qc6 prevents white Re8+. I must have missed that after 1...Qb6 2.Re8+ Rf8+ is check. Crafty so smart.

Looked at solution first, then opted for 1...Rg2+ 2.Kh1 Qc6 (same idea, wrong diagonal). Not sure why as White controls f3 and e4.

5.Ng4! gives N to save Q (if 5.Ke4 Ne6+ and ...NxQ). Long line to get to the punchline. Also have to decide whether to take a draw (Kg3 instead of Kf5 for rep).

@ jbuss, its an important information, when the problem occures again in a session. it shows the user that they have solved the problem, and very fast. the tactic is easy. any questions from your side ?

No one cares how long it took you, let's discuss the problem maybe?

Too many trivially winning solutions.
