2011-01-26 02:29:42greenkameleon1237took the rook :-( 
2011-05-31 10:52:47sqipeter1448Me too. I thought the K could escape because the black bishop blocks his own Q to mate on the next move. 
2013-11-07 10:28:42BadMamaJama1284I took the R too. Being two minor moving pieces down, it's not enough to win the game; but skewering the Q through the K is - with the help of dxe5+ and poor position for the K. 
2016-03-24 01:04:57dktransform1394needs go farther. 
2017-09-12 00:55:58superches1111780easy. just it is the trick that you do not take the rook
