So far, only one user has sent me the correct move. Isn't there anyone else, who can solve this puzzle? Or everyone's too shy to check how correct are their answers by PM'ing me?

I gave up and used an engine. I don't think I would ever have seen that move myself.

Damn this one is really brilliant. I love it! Solved it in 11 minutes ðŸ˜›
edit: that is, if my answer which i believe to be correct is correct.

It is correct. Damn, 11 minutes is really good.

Did you set up your final position on a board? If yes, take a close look at the 2nd Black rook.

No I didn't set up the position on a board, I used my mind. Damn. So close as well. Sorry people, my visualizing isn't as good as it should be for someone who has a rating of 1620.

Though this is wrong, it is very close to the solution. ðŸ˜‰
