2009-01-20 15:33:20UriBlass202523.6 seconds got it in the past but remembered it only when I saw that the rook a8 is under attack(did not see it in the beginning)

2010-09-02 18:17:24JoshBrack162736.1. looking for defensive moves last always. 
2011-12-22 00:49:23NoConception1912It also took me a long time to even find the move. Wonder why, when it's so simple. 
2013-04-26 10:55:51memo1598Found the solution immediately, but wasted time looking for a "tactic". 
2013-04-27 20:09:10floreatdunum1702Why is this so highly rated? Two rooks are attacked, need to save them. Durrr. 
2014-05-06 21:51:25chessisajedrez1731@floreatdunum, IMO some players see the two hanging rooks and yet play some "tactical" move (which is hard to guess to me). It's CTS mentality. Others may rush a move to avoid losing points. BTW, RD=9.1! Still, durrr...
