  Chessical: <Whitehat1963> I don't think so. White is in check, and will be a Q for a R down.
Sep-09-04  iron maiden: <Whitehat> Yeah, but White's in check.
Sep-09-04  sneaky pete: Uncle pete's "believe it or not":
<Isn't it mate for white after 19.Re8#???> That's exactly what Lajos Steiner thought!
Sep-09-04  Whitehat1963: Once again, I'm blind!
Sep-09-04  Whitehat1963: It's funny, I saw today's puzzle within a few seconds, but I couldn't see that white was in check. I have a case of intermitent vision. And most of the time it's turned off!
