    In your puzzle, you have white playing 3.Rf5+ which is followed by 3...,Kg5.  Black would instead play 3...,Rxf5 and white has lost two rooks for a knight. Your puzzle is flawed.

    Good Puzzel  very good on the sacrafice!  mate to follow soon!

    Very much envy those who found it very easy.  This is a very nice game by two GM's.  Glad to know some of our membership found it way too easy.  That scares me playing against anybody here.  I am not anywhere near that level since I found it difficult.  For me it was a learning experience.

    I don't know what you're looking at.  The puzzle I see has Qf5+ not Rf5+.

    Interesting exercise.  Somehow I don't have a warm feeling about having "solved" anything.
