I have a bit of time of my hands which is unusual and I played on CTS as a guest. I was amazed at this puzzle p43686 (my first for a long time) and I had to get a board and set it up.
The puzzle gave the continuation as 1.. f6 2. Nxg6 Qd8 (I was thinking about Qxg4) and lost ...[text shortened]... is rated 1497 but the depth of play required is at least 2000?
How do you guys fare on there?
I guess the idea is that Black did
play 1. ... f6 and you, as White, have to find the best reply. f6 is a natural enough move as it appears to win a piece. 2. Nxg6 looks obvious, anything else loses a piece for a pawn.
It's a bit scrappy and unclear though, isn't it? Usually the problems on there are fairly clear-cut. I believe they are from real games, though not necessarily the continuation which was played.
