2013-08-17 03:11:48novva1505Another crappy problem with dual solutions. Stockfish eval is -8.56 for ...Qa7+ and -5.29 for ...Bd7, which violates CTS' own rule for inclusion: The second best move is not completely winning (advantage of more than 4 pawn units). 
2014-04-07 21:35:04grom4318452.43 pawn difference by Crafty 19.19 3HGZ 5sec. Suggests @novva has a point. 
2015-09-13 11:37:47azizazadeh1253Waste of time. Should be removed. 
2017-04-20 09:41:51SteelyGlint1589Trouble is, if you see (1 Qc4) Bd7 you play it. Poor problem.
