    White to move and win. Don't move until you see it!

    But not too easy for you to bother posting the solution...

    Nice puzzle Do you have the game that it came from? I write a free chess tactics e-mail newsletter (sign up at http://tacticstime.com), and this is the type of problem I like to use in there! Realistic position, 1-3 move combination.

    The newsletter comes out every other day, and I think that most people who enjoy reading the forums here would like it! I use a ton of RHP games.

    She did post the solution, in spoiler from. You just unwittingly made it more visible.

    I'm not sure if it even came from a real game. I got it from an archived Chess Cafe article, and the author Dan Heisman attributes it to a Reinfeld book on tactics (he doesn't name the book though).

    You can find the article here: http://www.chesscafe.com/text/heisman05.pdf

    Also, I will give your newsletter a look. If there's one area of my game that desperately needs improvement, it's tactics.

    Apologies if I spoiled the fun for some by reply&quote showing the hidden.

    Fact remains that comments saying problems like these are 'too easy' are utterly useless and denigrating.
