  HeMateMe: Wow! white didnt get development, and had too many loose pieces. I especially like the black pawn block, moving in the center. Krush must have burned some midnight oil preparing this.

  patzer2: For a future Wednesday or Thursday puzzle, I think (19...?) would be an excellent choice.

The double attack with 19...d3! threatens both 20...Nf2+ -+ and 20...dxe7 -+.

White can't stop both threats, so Black wins.
