2009-01-19 13:34:53UriBlass1962problem 23412 to solve failure played Bxd5 instead of Nxd5 did not see the double threat against 2 rooks with Nxd5(Qxc4 and Nxf6+) and thought that Bxd5 is a good double threat igonring the simple Nxd5 that plans Nxc3 after Qxc4 
2009-01-20 05:11:10Coventry1613i dun get it 
2009-12-05 15:56:45drad1651damn 
2009-12-05 15:58:12drad1651not easy 
2010-01-07 18:09:09memo15982. Bxd5 "only" wins a pawn 
2010-04-10 13:24:32JoshBrack1627i wish it showed more moves on this. it's a real pain in the ass to read all the lines. :(

2012-02-01 11:03:53Cheester1355I also chose Bxd5. I just assumed that Black would have to take the Bishop to save his Queen. I didn't see 1. Bxd5 Rxc3 because I was not looking. They're called assumptions 'cos there made by asses! 
2014-02-26 15:58:51Improchess20513.bxc6,Nxd5 4.c7,Rf8 5.Rc1 and Queening is almost equivalent to the solution. It surprises me that nobody pointed out this is a dual. 
2017-11-13 22:22:38grom431839@Improchess. Nice line. But can't Black just play 5...Nxc7 now? That seems to leave Black down exchange only. Solution much easier to see (for avg guys like me) and luckily better.
