2007-09-02 19:15:59attilaturzo1869What about first Qd5 and than Bc4? 
2007-12-19 20:35:27mykingislonely1781Maybe because black can play Re6 
2008-03-28 02:13:22snakehead1508If Qd5+ then ...Kg6, then if h4+ the K escapes to g5. In the solution, this square is guarded by the white Q. 
2009-03-31 19:50:36UNCCHESS871361even if g 6 the situation is a cluster F*** for black, you could just check with pawn and setup another attack on that nice queen diagonal

2010-01-06 18:34:39smotherhubbard1858rejected Qd5+ because of Re6; Kg6 Nxe8 is good for White

2010-05-23 20:20:34grom4318212 Bc4+ +- 2 Qd5+ +/- 2 Nxe8 +/- Another problem with several winning moves to choose from.
