    15... Bxh2+ (which you mark !) is actually (?), it completely misses the mark. The correct tactic is 15... Nxd5 and white cannot recapture with his queen. 15... Bxh2+ throws away two pieces for one piece and a pawn.

    You're absolutely right. I was focused so much on move 22 that I completely forgot the point you made.

    What? That's easy! I bet anyone with a 1500 level tactically can see that. (also, why do you call Bb2, and some other moves, a blunder? they're not really that bad)

    Also, I think you should have reported this to chess.com directly, not on the forums. Posting this on the forums, accusing people of accusing you of cheating, might get you in trouble! (I think that might be in the rules or terms & agreements)

    People learn different aspects of chess at different rates.  That move will be obvious to some and invisible to others of the same rating.

    I don't know... Did you try putting it into an engine and see how long it takes to found it? Maybe not even a program can find it.

    The move was a check.  Most humans are going to at least glance at all possible checks.

    Are you kidding me? If I (1900 USCF and chess.com ratings) can find it, and RedTatsu (1500 chess.com rating) can find it, then why can't an engine find it?

    I put this position into my virus-infected-computer's Fritz 11 program: first, the position before Black plays Qh5? is already dead lost (it gives 2.58), but after Qh5, it gives 10.69. After moving Qg5-h5, the program took less than a second to find Nh6+... actually, it was the first move to pop up in the evaluation frame :P

    Hi, thanks for the info. 1) Bb2 allowed for the pushing of the passed pawn with tempo, if I recall. 2) Is a fact an accusation?

    Triplebauer has no knowledge and no respect. If he would have looked FOR ONCE into a chess tactics book he would know that 22.Nh6+ is nice, but compared to the complex combinations found by Anderssen, Morphy, Aliekhine, Lasker, Tal and others (all before the time of engines) it is not special at all.
