First time on this one.
This position is also known as the Saavedra position.
Nice underpromotion, these are the best puzzles. :)
Finnaly a good hard puzzle!
I don't understand it--what use is it promoting to rook instead of queen?
Nevermind, I see--the queen promotion would allow black to force a stalemate.
wow. very cool
very nice and easy puzzle
Why not after you sac your rook first move take knight and sac queen then move rook too h5. White king would have to move back to g8 then move bishop to h7.
Can't the king just move back to h8 once the bishop is blocking the h file?
My first thought was similar to yours.
Nice puzzle; cool queen sac and mate
