2009-05-09 17:02:57Hyperbeam1613nice one 
2010-03-13 19:29:07kendal1542Did that feel like tic tac toe to anybody else? 
2010-11-29 19:47:12QuickFire151119.4 secs -- got to admit: I didn't see it all when I made the first move. 
2011-03-19 14:02:44grom431828Even remembering it the last move is a surprise because he doesn't allow 3...Qxe7 4.Rf8#. But 4.Rf8 mates anyway. Like this problem. 
2011-04-13 20:06:07themagician1700I failed the last move. 
2011-08-02 18:45:59Nimzozo1781really beautiful ! 
2011-10-24 15:40:33SirRick1703nice one, thought for a while the last move 
2012-02-03 17:44:24chessisajedrez1743QuickFire stole my words 
2013-05-01 20:50:39Teocosmo891347very difficult one 
2017-03-16 21:04:23chessisajedrez1743Acrobatic, juggling act, etc.
