Why not the first move must be Rc3(or Rf1) and not Rd3?

Interesting

I love this combination. First time I saw it was when Bent Larsen (the best Danish player ever and close to be world champ - only problem was first Spassky and then Fischer - showed it with excitement. One of the finest ends ever :-)

Too easy.....

Interesting, some say easy, others say tricky.  I got it first go with a bit of thought.

iIkchs

good one!

Paraniod

interesting first move...

how can people say this was easy? Are they lying to make themselves look good? That first move was so not obvious to me. After that, it's pretty straightforward, but I also thought 1.Rf1 was nearly as good.

I find it funny the people who say a puzzle from a grandmaster game is too easy, then you look at their ratings which are under 1100.
