May-22-04  Everett: This could be a good one-mover problem. Too easy for the many who've poured over some of the puzzles at this site, the the deflection and back-rank mate theme is always nice to see.
May-22-04  misguidedaggression: It looks like white can hold on with 25.g3 Qxg4 26.Rxd8 followed by Be7 winning the knight. But I'm not that good at endgames. Still B&R vs Q seems playable enough.
