2010-08-01 13:26:53rathkeltair1711Bit easy for 1781? 
2010-10-15 11:40:20UriBlass1888No,There is the trap Nxg4+ that wins the queen. 
2011-02-25 14:17:01MishaTheCat18281.2 seconds Nxg4 doesn't win the queen. 
2011-02-25 14:17:02MishaTheCat18281.2 seconds Nxg4 doesn't win the queen. 
2011-03-11 00:12:10grom431836how does Nxg4+ (double check) not win the queen on e3?? it does. however, after that it's q+p versus R+B+N. mate is best.

2011-07-26 15:59:21grom431836Played Nxg4++ without calculating to gain rating. Lost rating instead. :-( Good problem for that reason.

2011-12-01 01:14:03NoConception1912Good as a trap, but who has time to count material during problems? Well... it got me D:
