2007-07-20 23:41:21plopje1678yeah. But obvious. It had to be a forced mate otherwise it was a loss. Knight e3 failed on bishop f1. 
2009-07-09 19:35:00DocB1237pretty tricky 
2009-07-30 21:50:17grom4318042.3 seconds. why rated so high? nice mate but i didn't see it until after 1st move. just knew it had to be there (see plopje's comment). 
2009-09-29 01:21:56drad1651it's rated high because people don't see the mate and try for the piece fork.

2012-01-31 18:58:11SirRick1703too late noticed I was a R down... so any fork try is useless
