this was a kinda weird puzzle
I once lost a rook+2 pawns+other material vs. rook and bishop endgame to that very same mate pattern...against a then-8-year-old!

Got it on my first try. Good job today guys. Very nice puzzle!
Nice!The only thing that white could do as his next move!Then the pawn promotion and fast finishing!
easy, nice way to escape mate and it's a winning position for white!
boring, that ain't no puzzle........
i dont get the title
Most chess players love to attack and hate to defend. Of course usually you'll find out that the best offense is the best defense. Thanks for the lesson in Chess Strategy and Tactics!
i had this kind of position in my game andi defended it ;-)
That's so easy!
I don't get this puzzle.
thanks Hobbiton, it is an important point. Nice puzzle however is there any way out of this?
