    This is how the game ended. Black missed a defensive
    resource overlooked by both players. Can you find it?

    1. ...Bxf3 after 5 seconds.

    edit - no. maybe 2. ...Bf3, after 25 seconds

    edit 2, neither this one. I am going to the beach despite waves.

    I missed the bishop capture, hallucinating 1…Bxf3 2. Re8#
    Nice resource.

    Clue: Check all Checks!

    Black can draw this.

    3. ...Ra1+ is a check.
    After 4. Kf2, does Black have perpetual check?

    edit: no, no luck this time. My undead friend found it, I wouldn't never have guessed it.

    Or maybe not… I am all over the place in this thread.

    The missed variation.

    Why did White play 2. Nd7 first instead of 2. Re7 immediately? No check with Qa7 then.

    That was a mistake, he (nor did his opponent) saw the Qa7 idea.
