2011-02-22 18:07:05newrunner1505i thought for sure that g5 was the answer and that it trapped the queen. After 1 ...Qd2, 2 Bxf2 Black has Qxf2 saving herself. anyone else try g5? 
2011-11-17 07:55:58underated1332I sacked the bishop exposing the king to a queen fork also... 
2011-11-19 13:06:41Seamus1335If the bishop gives check, does this not win the queen rather than a fork in which only a rook is won? 
2011-11-19 13:07:04Seamus1335I just realized that underated posted the same thing  
2017-11-12 17:15:29SaintMark973If 1 ... Bxf2, 2 Qxf2, and the best you've got as far as I can see is 2 ... Nd3 anyway, and you end up winning a pawn and rook for a bishop and knight.
