    With respect, Cnacnel I don't think you've understood it properly. Have you taken a careful look at the alternative moves/mates?

    I admit the main line isn't the best but that's how it was presented on the source site!  If you think Black can defend against 1.Qb8, then please show how..

    I'm sorry, I was wrong. I didn't see the move list and thought I can defend against Nef7# with Rf8. Hangover surely does impair one's insight.

    Appreciate you taking the time & trouble to post that Cnacnel.  I don't get them myself but it seems like good advice to avoid tricky puzzles when you have a hangover!      Wink

    This is one where knowing it was a puzzle (especially knowing it was mate in 2) made it easy.  In a game, I might miss this.
