2011-12-25 17:10:27destroyer11359what does Ra8 do? i cant believe thats the answer 
2016-02-04 17:54:52SaintMark955I think it should continue 2 ... Kh7 3 Rh8 Kg6 4 Rg8, skewering the king and queen. But yeah, it's a lousy problem without it including those moves. 
2017-08-06 21:57:17SaintMark955Actually, make that 3 Qh8 rather than Rh8. Other than that, that's right.
