free_fall you said it.

That took couple of goes

• #25

Stupid puzzle.

• #26

The continuation would be...

4... Nf1+  5.) Kf2 or f3, NxQ  6.) Ng6+, Kh7  7.) BxR, and now White is up an outside passed pawn a bishop (black can run with the knight and white runs with his knight, or black takes and white takes as well).  White wins.

• #27

Any problem with 2.Kh2 ?

Seems possible as well. Might only be a little bit more complicated.

(one nice line: 1.Rxf6 Qc1+ 2.Kh2 Kh7 3.Qxh6+! gxh6 4.Rf7#)

But the idea is simple: the 1st move threatens checkmate next. Black then finds a tricky way to avoid it, by sacrificing his Queen.

PS: for those interested in the continuation, it would be:

4. ... Nf1+ 5. Kf3 Nxe3 6. Ng6+ Kg8 7. Bxd8,

and White is winning in the endgame.

Certainly 3. Qg2 is a better try.  It breaks the pin, and if 3...Nf4, forking queen and rook, then 4. Rd8+ wins the queen.  What would be the continuation after 3. Qg2?

• #39

Interesting that my comment before seeing the title was going to be that it was difficult to solve because it required alot of calculation.  Before checking the solution I solved it through 3. Kg3 but missed the fact that after 3...Qxf6, black is threatening 4...Nf1+.

This shows two things.  First that it required more calculation then I had even thought and second it reminds me that calculation is a tremendous weakness in my game.
