    The position arose after

    1. Qxf7 Nxe4

    so


    2. fxe4??

    was an obvious falling for the cheap trap.



    And the winning move is :

    2... Rg8 !!!!!??

    I never request takebacks in blitz games, but this just hurts.

    White can't get a Rook to g8

    2. ...Rg8 is what you fear?

    You mean you did Rg8 instead of Rf8?
    Oh, that must hurt a lot...

    I think that should be 2..Rf8.

    I don't believe the move merits 5 exclamation marks though (or any question marks).

    Of course the Rf8 was the move I intended with knight captures pawn move

    Yes, but they missed that and played the wrong move (admittedly it paid off! )

    Yes they are if your opponent agrees, at least on FICS. But takebacks has nothing to do with serious chess I think, even if you make a finger slip..

    Is White completely lost after 3 Qxf8+ Qxf8+ 4 Kg2? At a quick glance, he has the 2 rooks and a knight v. Queen and bishop.
