Apr-28-06  cavaleiro: And here, blakc's 23rd move could be a puzzle too!
Oct-28-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: I absolutely agree, <cavaleiro>!
Feb-16-07  crptone: I absolutely disagree, <Autoreparaturwerkbau>!

I don't see the win after 24.Rxd3 Nb4+ 25.Rxd4 Rxd4. A much better move for black would be 23..Nb4+

  whiteshark: White sh/could have played, true for both moves. It's quite unclear why he resigned.
Feb-13-09  percyblakeney: Successful Prestidge even if some moves seem to be more magical than logical. 11. ... Be6 sacrifices a knight instead of taking a rook. The Transported Queen on move 23 gives the win back to black but he doesn't want to mail the immediately winning Nb4+ and suddenly white resigns in a better position: 25. Kd2 Rxd4+ 26. Bxd4 with two rooks and pawn for the queen.
Feb-13-09  A.G. Argent: <crptone> Yes, of course, you're right about 23...Nb4+. It would nail White's Queen and probably win. But, sorry, you seem to have missed something out in the line you offer after Karlsson's 23...Bxd3+. 24.Rxd3 Nb4+ also get's the Queen. The check has to be dealt with. There can't be no 25.Rxd4 Rxd4. You maybe meant something like 25.Kb1 Rxd4 26.Rxd4 and on, fairly well equalised. In the advent of 25.Qxb4 Bxb4 26.Rxd8 Kxd8, I think I'd wanna be Black.
Apr-19-13  PolishPentium: If i may say, it appears crptone's suggested line is not correct. After ... 24 Nb4+, 25 Rxd4 is ILLEGAL in two ways. First, the White R can't even get to d4, since the Queen is in the way, and of course the move also still leaves the K in check from the N at b4. Thus, the Black check on move ...23 appears correct, and devastating, whether White recaptures with King or Rook.
Apr-19-13  Zkid: <PolishPentium> I think it's fairly clear that as mentioned by <A.G. Argent> above <crptone> meant 25. Kb1 Rxd4 26. Rxd4 and just forgot to write in the king move.
Dec-11-16  EdC: If black just plays 11...Nxa8, is white's attack worth a piece?
