Challenging but logical.
very nice puzzle. Queen and rook sacrifice to lure him into the knight and bishop trap.

The correct names are "Perlasca - Grassi, Como, 1907"
HARD AND VERY GOOD PROBLEM
seventh page ...take that losers !
Thank you for posting this puzzle.
wow, great mate
Bishop to F7
O/k-ish up to the third move (although I first tried moving the knight to f4) & then had to stare at this position for some time before the solution came to me - brilliant !
Enormous admiration for any player who can pull that off
But who on earth was Perlaska ?? There's no entry in Chessgames for either player & I drew a blank on Google - but I did find this...
So now the irrelevant & inane comments of the 'first-pagers' are leaking out into the wider world - It's depressing !
I can't say I've seen anything more than first page,like annayzing puzzle,or if you did'nt,that's the goal thier trying to reach,posting on first page,I do not get it,I live 50 mile's from Boston so I'm on eastern standard time,the puzzle ussualy get's posted around 3:00 AM,for me,I get up at about 4:00AM every day, I'm lucky to post on third page,anyone east of me in USA has there time later than me,so if it's 3:00 AM here it's 12:00 AM in california,so it's possible some people are up at that time,but from here to California there are three time zone's,so I would say those people are not up when puzzle get's posted.so all these people are at a place where 3:00 AM is a normal time zone for them,some where on the other side of the world.Let them post whatever they want,but don't act like you did something even remotely close to chess
wow i got that one on the first try cool
That was awesome!
