2008-01-27 18:16:12tomohawk1818Nice problem, but solution should be lengthened. 
2009-01-09 18:21:16jokim2000Pretty difficult with those hanging pieces. Even after the requested move it is not so clear how Black should continue.

2010-08-06 00:39:44JoshBrack1627181.7 i think if after ...rxf4 white tries fxe4 instead then ...rf2 is forcing mate. 
2010-10-07 00:45:46grom431821@jokim. 1 exd6 Be4 threatens mate. 2 f3 is forced, right? 2...Qg3+ Ng2 3 Bb6 was my plan. Yes Josh, Rf2-+ seems 100% accurate (mate).  
2011-05-05 01:00:26flatman1454solution should be much longer! 
2011-06-24 15:41:11Nimzozo1781I agree. 38.6 sec 
2012-04-09 21:57:39edgy1632OH COME ON. YOU CANNOT SERIOUSLY LEAVE THIS AT ONE MOVE. WHAT GARBAGE. 
2013-12-30 03:53:57chessisajedrez1731Agree with most everyone, too short. 
2014-04-03 21:02:41nune1570After f3, Rxf4 is best, but both Bb6 and Qg3+ win easily, so unfortunately more moves can't be given here.
