2007-02-18 20:45:47YOIULI1539At least one more move... Black plays 4...Rh2 (Crafty didn't analyzed it) 
2007-08-15 18:05:26ochase1498very pretty 
2008-11-13 06:10:15TheKingIsBack1546Rh3 was very unexpected. I don't think anyone passed that one. 
2008-11-13 06:11:34TheKingIsBack1546YOIULI, after Rh2, then Rh1. 
2009-01-04 07:16:50kwanpin1752RH3! 
2009-06-25 14:10:57floreatdunum1721tough! 
2009-07-22 20:55:42joakimvitriol1608Rh1 x-ray defence 
2009-08-14 17:13:41smotherhubbard1858this problem is on the server twice, once with 5.Rh1 and once without 
2009-12-02 15:37:50Epic1586difficult 
2010-05-23 15:33:56rathkeltair1711Needs one more move Rh2 Rh1 
2010-05-26 18:10:34AlexeiD1581had to think for 30+ seconds, very good and unexpected one 
2010-05-27 02:57:06grom431828What's also interesting is 3 a8=Q+, because the timing is precise for the win. 
2010-09-12 17:04:42101016413.Rh3?? Rf8 and black is winning. 
2011-06-25 14:59:57Nimzozo1781one of the nicest I've seen here ! 
2011-07-11 16:20:46WorseThanBad18211.6 seconds the 1st move is only for bonus points 
2011-07-26 19:16:22edgy1632Incredible! 
2011-08-27 10:14:34HermioneG18071.4 seconds I think there's another exercice like this one but still different somewhere so it can confuse me sometimes. 
2011-08-27 10:15:02HermioneG1807PS: great problem ! 
2011-11-15 17:20:43SirRick1703oh my, played 3. Rh3...but as 1010 (and Crafty) point, that it loses to Rf8 
2016-04-09 08:28:24blisscoach13573. Rh3 is a cute move but 3.Qd5+ is a more practical win.
