2005-08-12 05:48:11edgy16321...Qh1+ 2.Kxh1 fxg4+ is the same, except more forcing. Faulty problem. 
2005-08-17 20:23:57SveJoe1549I don't agree 
2005-08-23 10:52:21Fingerly1476The line with 1. ... Qh1+ (which I played, too) is inferior because White can cover the discovered check and protect the B with Bh2. In the solution, both the B on h4 and the R on a1 are hanging, and White's problems are more pronounced. 
2010-02-07 15:44:23grom431826I didn't even see 1...Qh1+? which misses win completely. Fingerly correct (except the Bg3 is not hanging, so 2 Kg1 would also be fine for White).

2011-03-13 20:09:37Freeze1471I play Qxg4, but that leaves things just about equal after Nd2. 
2013-06-25 11:38:38arttrysted1350Yeah I did Qh1 too. 
2015-02-07 02:30:28midn1ght1653Doesn't anyone check their analysis? Well, I guess in 2005 you had to use an abacus or something :) 
2015-02-12 01:07:25floreatdunum1697Why would anyone play 1... Qh1+?? Bizarre suggestion. 1... hxg4 is clearly correct, no marks for any other move. 
2015-08-15 17:21:06chessisajedrez1743@floreatdunum, I did. I saw myself an exchange up with BxR. I missed the solution + the fact I started a piece down. The solution leaves the Bh4 hanging, guaranteeing the exchange gain. 
2017-05-09 21:32:54chessisajedrez1743@midn1ght, more respect please. I still use my abacus, especially when my laptop is running low on battery.
