2008-12-30 03:37:36OldPatzer1054Double check by Nh4+ and Q(b7), with loss of material. {Nh4 also blocks check by R(h1).} If Kh2 or g1, Qg2#. If Kh3, f1 or f2, Qxh1(R). If Qf3, Qxf3+. 
2010-06-21 12:19:54MaltaCross1278Very nice fork with DISCOVERED check !! 
2013-06-13 05:56:19ronlizada1198Stupid me! I didn't even realize I was in check.
