White has just played 16.Nd4 and then I played which turn out to be blunder Kd8 ?? why ? try the puzzle.
That's a nice tactic. Too bad you were on the wrong end of it. Why did you play 16...Kd8?
to get a way from the e - rook, lol
isn't the e pawn free for you to take instead of that Kd8?
no, if you look at the game, if I took that e pawn then knight would have been pinned.

That's a cool mating trap! (too bad you were on the receiving end!) : )
Not too difficult. Once I saw the bishop and knight in front of a rook I new it was going to be a discovered check. It is a good double check though.
