 If you can't figure out who the 'douche' is, then its probably you.

to whoever wrote 1.Ng5...Kh7,2.Nf8 will not work,pawn blocks Queen,pawn is protected by rook,nice try but it is flawed

 You can't block with the pawn since Nf8 i a double check.

However, because of Kh8, Nf8 is no winner.

Of course it's from a real game. But why bother posting obvious mates and calling them puzzle? I don't think Larsen had a tough time finding the mate from the position where we are given the puzzle.

There are so many great puzzles out there why not post them instead of this?

Or at least change the headline to something like "mate of the day". Because calling it a puzzle is a disgrease to most puzzle makers.
