    This is a known trap, black has to take on d4 before 0-0.  I've actually played this in a game, so I got the puzzle really fast (although I was unaware black could avoid the loss of a piece for so long).

    Why did the solution end when it did...with no checkmate shown? Is it so obvious they didn't show it? Help please!

    In the final position, Black must either lose a piece or give Rook for minor piece in a quiet position. Between masters, the win is then just a question of technique, but it would take a long struggle before it was done. Marco resigned on the spot, knowing there was no realistic chance of saving the game.

    I personaly think that they should try to include a few more puzzles like these, instead of having the large majority being games of "mate in (2,3,4)". It makes great variety for the daily puzzle, and the variety is a good benefit.

    I second that notion.
