    1. .. Rd8 2. h3 Rd2 does not work because of Rf8#


    1. .. Qe8 (threat Qxf7) 3. Rxb7 Qe1+ wins

    Also works, but 1…Qe8 is more precise! Less available checks after 2.Rxg7 and the Q is able to help quickly.

    Well done

    Thanks! I see what you mean. I saw the back rank trick but not that 1. Qe8 was also possible. I have to remember Lasker’s “When you see a good move, look for a better one!”
