If not for the double checks then the black knight would be a good defender.
Norest-I thought you were right with post #80, but since there is no double check, the Rook on c1 can take the bishop.
easy nearly like sunday
Yes, this was a good one, nice use of the rooks with the bishop backup.
Euwe 1927 - Mate in 2:
I've seen that one before. Nice one.
The trick here is to not play too hastily as I did by moving by moving the wrong rook instead of the right rook literally.
If I had only taken a moment to analyze the board rather than arbitrarily making a check move with R at b7 I would have seen the R at h7 and would have looked more carefully before moving.
Good Puzzle that I shoud have been successful solving.
easy but nice
