2008-03-10 07:20:41underated1332nasty position that isn't 
2009-06-02 20:11:01Holy1016Nice. White's threat on the Black queen allows him to capture the offending knight--the tempo gained by the check allows immediately regaining the "lost" queen, with an overall gain of a knight and a won endgame. 
2009-08-11 13:20:05MaltaCross1278Great explanation by Holy. 
2010-06-16 11:59:02MaltaCross1278Getting out of check by CAPTURING the checking piece! 
2011-07-29 17:08:31PeacefulShade1579Reasonably obvious: simplifying combination that converts the material advantage.
