  patzer2: Legal's mate is always a pretty finish!
Jan-04-04  John Doe: what happens if he captures with the d pawn first?
Jan-04-04  BiLL RobeRTiE: then he's lost material after Qxg4.
Jan-04-04  talchess2003: <what happens if he captures with the d-pawn first> if you mean, capture on e5 before the knight, then white has: 10.... dxe5 11. Bxf7+ Kxf7 12. Nxe5+
