2007-05-12 17:50:24floreatdunum1729Nice - actually an - initially unexpected -exploitation of a weak bank rank 
2007-11-11 18:19:45Faquarl1578A pin. 
2011-05-14 13:08:34MagicCat1695lol failed 
2011-11-07 01:39:38NoConception1912Rather simple for a 1900 problem. What did a lot of people try? 
2012-01-18 22:49:55grom431826The only other candidate move (for me) was 2.Qg6. But the pinned h-pawn and overworked queen is decisive. You win the piece.  
2013-02-21 08:13:54Garryback1679Crafties line is totally wrong: :-3.02} 2. Qg6 Bf6?? 3. Qh7+ Kf8 4. Bg6 Qc5 5. b3 b5 6. Bxh6?? winning and sense of b-pawn-move 6.Bb2!+-or 6.Rxf6! +4.52 Houdini 1.5 - +1.57 Fritz 11 
2013-02-21 08:15:56Garryback1679right and only defence after 2.Qg6? is Nf6! -+
