    Nice little puzzle, I'd say it's quite hard, but not too hard.

    recent game...

    Well then, how about it?

  • #1386

    I just finished this one recently, Black can win a queen, or mate in 4+ moves depending on how unsportsmanlike White is :P

    Also, check the move list after you solve it.

    a game i played a few days ago...got a nice puzzle out of it. :)

  • #1388

    Haha, how did you even get to that position? :P

    If after Nd4+, Ka3, then Nb5+ fork for the Queen without material loss.  So the best move for white is to take the knight on d4 since the Queen will be lost on the next move no matter what white decides to play.
