    I still dislike that it allows you to make illegal moves.

    where? I have never seen it allow an illegal move.

    e5 is illegal and if you try doing so you wil fail

    Did you miss the black pawn sitting on e7?  I dont know why you would move it to e5 rather than e6, but e5 is still a possible move, although illegal.

    e5 was actually the very first move I considered, before realizing I was in check.  The idea in my mind was to block off white's queen from his king, to allow the black queen to move in for a mate.  Obviously it doesn't quite work that way. =/

    good moment

    I think but, Im not sure that e5 leads to mate and white wins because the king and queen have acess to the corner

    This puzzle is wrong!  On black's second move Qf2 check. White Kh5. Black Pe3. White whatever move it wants. Black Bg6 checkmate!  If I am right I want my tactic points back!  lol

    If black moved pe3 white can take the bishop

    At first I didn't realise I was in check. I liked 1... Kg7 because of the mating threat 2... Qh6+. But it wasn't conclusive so before making the move I thought I'd have another look around to see what else might be on. Then I realised I was in check. So 1...Kg7 looked even better! The only remaining question was whether mate was still on with the 2nd move. It wasn't so I took the rook. At which point I realised that my c pawn was one square away from queening. Result +10, but I feel slightly fortunate as I never really grasped all that was going on till the end.

    Good problem.  I moved the king correctly, but didn't take the rook.

    People are complaining that they don't know they're in check??? How much of the board do you actually look at if you miss being in check?

    YawMawn - Too busy to look at the board. I tend to watch the clock ticking down instead ;-)

    "Check?"  "You talking about check?"  A.I. shoutout.

    20 secs for the first move. Then a whole minute before taking that rook.

    kind of awkward since the puzzle before this one I was white. Had to reset everything in my mind to realise it and lost a lot of time.

    Looked for a real long time before taking the rook.  Seemed too easy

    I went for another check on the king, too, instead of snagging the rook.
