2009-04-16 00:11:23scuba1266a beaut! tough to see 
2009-06-02 20:09:05Holy1016Excellent combo. The player not only has to see the skewer to win the promoted queen, but also must see that 4. Rd7 doesn't work because 4. ... Ke6 chases the rook to Rd8, followed by 5. ... Ke7 which prevents the skewer. 
2009-07-24 19:21:22Plasticage1127Very nice...
