    yeah Nd8 in 3rd is a better idea

  • #169

    So classic.  I haven't seen it enough times yet for it to be on full automatic, but the setup was evident.   Love it.

    Intuitive! Even i have got it from the first attempt!

  • #171
    Easy:-)
  • #172

    I am very surprised that people are impressed by this combination, it is extremely common.

  • #173

    Everything's new to you once.

    I like it, love the way the Knight was used.

  • #175

    Smothered mate. I've seen this so many times before.

  • #176

    really like the alternative solution.

    Unless i m wrong, this is a synthesis of Huan Ramirez Lucena dated back to 1497. Then, it was one of the most advanced ideas in chess, achieving the "etouffe checkmate". I think it would be polite to mention this information as a tribute to a legendary Spanish player of the romantic period of chess. Plus a good history lesson. Chess is not only calculation but also education.
