2008-04-22 02:59:16shams1474should really get credit for the immediate 2.Ne8+ also.  
2009-01-09 01:13:52pjj141728To shams: Yes, 2. Rxe8+ would deserve credit, if it were legal :-).

2009-09-14 16:41:27chessyeti1756I played 2.Re8, forgetting that the rook was pinned, and so lost elo rating points :-( 
2009-09-14 16:42:18chessyeti1756to Joakimvitriol: its not exposed King, its Back Rank Mate! 
2009-10-29 08:44:13UriBlass2002I touc the rook and noticed in the last second that the rook is pinned. found the right move but too late because with 8 seconds I lost rating points.

2012-01-06 10:15:3810101662Missed the pin. 
2013-10-18 22:18:33grom431861I was thinking he gets out of check ...Kh8 and I could play Qc3 or something to unpin my R when all of a sudden he threw his B to d5. You need luck sometimes. 
2017-10-08 03:16:53legendironman1545I did not see the pin :(
