    White to play and win, black's last move was Kh5-g5.

    Also taken from ChessTempo.

    It took me about 40 minutes to solve, which is really long for me
    (usually, if I don't find the solution within a couple of minutes, I guess).
    Took ages for me to see the key move. I was wondering if people see
    this thing instantly or had a hard time like me

    And of course Nf7+ .. Ne5+ etc which is what I would probably play in an otb game...

    I got the first move rather quickly, but for the wrong reason!
    seems the most forcing move, simply because black must go

    otherwise white shall simply wins the Rook after Qxh4+ I must admit that i never got
    the continuation afterwards

    If you enjoy the study of chess tactics, I put out a free chess tactics newsletter that you might like. It comes out every other day, and includes an original chess tactics problem (none taken from chess tempo for example), a chess quote, the complete game score, fun facts/story about the game or position, and some analysis of the solution.

    Most of the problems are 1-3 moves in difficulty. Many are taken from RHP games.

    You can sign up at or send me a PM here with your email address, and I can add you to the mailing list.

    There is a one click unsubscribe link with each email, so there is no risk, and no hassle if you don't like it.
