habbiton, in posting #31 finds a good response for black - advance the h pawn to h4.  Unfortunately, advancing 2 squares after having advanced that pawn is not a legal move.  And getting there in 2 moves gives white multiple ways to defuse that attack.  I like
1.g4  h5, 2.d8=Q  hxg4,  3.hxg4  and black is down a queen.
or
1.g4  h5, 2.d8=Q  h4,    3.Qxh4  Rh1+,  4.Kg3  Rxh4, 5.Kxh4.  and black is down a rook.

Edit - whoops.  4. ... Rxh4 is impossible --- white's pawn at h3 is in the way.  Even worse for black.

In both lines White simply plays 3 Qd4+ winning Black's rook!

I can't for the life of me understand why this should be a problem. When the puzzle board settles, the comment section is out of sight. What would you expect people to post on the first page - 'FIRST', 'FIRST PAGE' or something similar ? If you catch a glimpse of the comments, just don't read them !

yeah, how easy to fall into a trap and to lose a winning match...

so thanks for the defending title.

and how easy to make people happy being on page 1! Suggest: make page 1 a lot longer and get more people happy each day...
