    Good puzzle. Only Fridays and Saturdays the good ones appear.

    The way it seems to work is Sundays are the easiest and it get slightly harder by day until Fri/Sat. when it gets more challenging. Sadly 5 days of the week are all weak.

    I'm no linguist but in Eastern European languages, J is pronounced as Y & V as F so...

    6. f7+ Rxf7 7. Bg6 Bd5 does not gain as much material for white as the puzzle line.

    The point is that being ahead by a Queen for a Rook guarantees a win between experts, barring something remarkable - and there is nothing remarkable for Black in the final position.
