Originally posted by SquelchbelchYes, but there was another good move afterwards... good spot though. Told you it was easy!
I've used this tactic quite a lot & OTB, too.
Sweet when it comes off, ain't it?
Here's the OTB example from a game I played a few months ago.
White to move
[fen]r2qkbnr/pp2pppp/2np4/8/2B1P1b1/2N2N2/PP3PPP/R1BQK2R w KQkq - 0 7[/fen]
Originally posted by curseknightI believe you might be referring to the move 1. ... Nxe4!
I was playing a friend of mine recently, and we got to this position (White just played Nd5)- what were the next moves? Solutions PMed please, 1400+ will find it easy.

Ok, probably you are thinking about
1. .. Bxf2+
But what are you doing after 2. Ke2
I think, the position is better for white!
Originally posted by curseknight1...Bxf2+
1. Bxf2+ Ke2
2. Nxe4 Bxd8
What actually happened was
1. Bxf2+ Kf1
2. Nxd5! (Bxd8 Ne3+) exd5 (Qxd5 in [b]this position is better, but impossible at the time)
Originally posted by IkutursoAs far as I am aware, he pointed that out originally.
2. Ke2 Nxe4
3. Bxd8 Ba6+
4. Qd3 Bxd3+
5. Kxd3 then what? Black is down a piece.
For "what actually happened" (1...Bxf2+ 2. Kf1), you are giving yourself "!" on a losing move. After 2...Nxd5 3. Qxd5 wins for White.
