2006-12-07 22:49:50Arthurrocks1801why is this 1999? Not as hard as it's rating 
2007-01-06 15:00:26ibaric1428It took me some time because i was focused on the attack and not on queen capture. 
2007-03-15 02:59:01stbrie1186Nice way to give it away, ibaric. 
2007-03-18 21:38:05sujabdul1603everybody thinks abt moving forward only... but it seems something else 
2007-07-11 21:48:54hedgehoghead11028attacking is not everything 
2008-06-01 21:00:25blcnngn2315not difficult as 2013 
2009-09-22 20:32:41UriBlass1959I thought about Bf2+ and Bh2+ and saw nothing and it took me more than 2 minutes to find Rg6 so the problem beat me 1:0 and took all the rating points. I should know to stop fast when I see nothing and try to think about something else but unfortunately I often forget about this idea.
