    The whole "first" thing is pathetic. To actually value some trivial thing like that...

    Too easy.

    Kept looking to see something with the Rooks - finally saw the lurking, pinning Bishop.

    An interesting puzzle: imagine it is black's turn instead of white's.  Any way to take it to a draw?  I'm thinking of 1. ... Re6 as my first move.  Is that the best move?
    What comes next?

    EDIT:
    I'm guessing the next round would be
    2. Qg4  Rg8
    Then a possible following line might be
    3. Rfc1 Qd5
    4. Rc8  Re7
    5. Qh4 Qe6
    6. Rc2  e3
    7. Re2  Qd6
    8. Bd4  1-0
    I can't figure any salvation for black at this point - where did he blunder?
    e.g.,
    8.  ...   exf2
    9.  Rxe7 b5
    10. Rf1  Rf8
    11. Bxg7+  Kg8
    12. Bxh6   Rf7
    13. Rxf7    Kxf7
    14. Rxf2+  Ke8
    15. Rd2    Qxd2
    16. Bxd2  and now there is REALLY no point in playing further 1-0

    The point is that combination of the bishop controlling the main diagonal with the black king at h8 is difficult if not impossible to defend against, with the material disadvantage we see in this problem.
